It's a cloudy but bright morning in Yuzawa. Much more so than yesterday. Currently 6 degrees in town and a high of 9 degrees expected this afternoon.

Kagura is reporting a temperature of -1C, high of 6C for later and windspeed of 3m/s.

There's a few resorts with planned opening dates due this coming weekend, including the Tashiro section of Kagura, Naeba and Iwappara in Yuzawa; and Joetsu Kokusai in neighbouring Minamiuonuma.

There's no official word yet from Tashiro or Naeba. There is snow up at Tashiro and so I would expect a part opening there as planned, but it will very likely still be limited at Kagura as a whole. Naeba are busy making snow on the run in front of the hotel and so I would expect that to open as planned on Saturday. There's no natural snow surrounding the man-made snow as of this moment though.

As for Iwappara and Joetsu Kokusai - unless we have significant snowfall between now and Saturday, it is looking extemely unlikely as there's hardly any snow on the slopes. The forecast doesn't look too hopeful for more than sprinklings either and so I think it's safe to say that they won't be able to open.

We will of course be posting daily updates and so will keep you up to date on the latest.
