Good morning from the Yuzawa area where we still have snow clouds up above. It's not actually snowing just now, but light snow is expected during the day today. There's 10cm on the top of my car, fallen from the skies since yesterday day time and the snow walls around town are now once again looking refreshed and - high!

Someone pointed this out yesterday... official snow depths for resorts have many with more than Kagura which we always expect to have the most. Whether lower down actually has had more or not is certainly open for question - especially when we remember that official snow depths at Kagura often don't budge even when they get 40cm for a few days in a row! Sometimes you feel certain resorts actually downplay the amount of snow. Having said that, and just an observation, but I feel there's more snow piled up on the side of the roads in the Shiozawa and Muikamachi area than there is in Yuzawa. Still huge amounts everywhere of course at the moment...

OK so it's -2 degrees at the moment. Lots of fresh snow, should be excellent conditions everywhere right now.

Forecasts disagree on what we have in store after tomorrow - clearer weather on Thursday, or rain? I know which I'd prefer.
