The rain wasn't fun yesterday, and it was really coming down at times. Windy too along with the warm conditions. For the first day of March, it wasn't too good!

The rain turned into snow overnight though. Around 5cm or so this morning with resorts reporting up to 10cm of fresh snow. Snow is falling at the moment, though it's definitely of the wet variety. But definitely better than what we had yesterday that's for sure. It's going to be a dusting on ice and the wind probably won't help in that respect either today...

Unfortunately, strong winds are causing problems with lifts around town. There's limited operations at Naeba and Kagura, GALA Yuzawa (which has actually closed now), NASPA Ski Garden and Yuzawa Kogen in Yuzawa. Also it seems that Maiko Snow Resort is being affected by strong winds with the Gondola and top bowl area closed at the time of writing.

The winds are forecast to continue through the day along with snow showers. Tomorrow is forecast to be calmer though some snowfall may continue. Looking ahead in the coming week we can expect more sunny conditions. Hopefully it will keep cold, though a warm up like we say over the last few days might be on the cards again for later in the week.

Tonight it is the Yuzawa Snow Festival along the main onsen road from the West Exit of the main Echigo Yuzawa Station, though the weather isn't looking like it will be co-operating and events may well get cancelled.

Have a fun weekend.
