Good morning from Yuzawa.

There was more snow during the day yesterday and overnight, though not quite as full on as it was and not as much as the forecasts (including the often close to correct Niigata Prefecture snowfall forecast) told us to expect.

An additional 10cm was cleared yesterday evening and with just 8cm this morning... so that makes 18cm for the report today.

Curiously, Kagura seem to be reporting 'no snow since yesterday'. Maiko Snow Resort are reporting 10cm.

It is still snowing lightly now and that is probably what we can expect for the day today, though it might ease off.

This morning parts of Naeba are not open due to risk of avalanche, including the top area and Dragondola. Otherwise ski areas around town appear to have caught up with themselves again and generally opening as normal; though it looks like the top quad at Iwappara is still being rested this morning. Both the top and base areas of Yuzawa Kogen are open and all of the Central and Northern Areas of GALA Yuzawa are now open.
