Morning from Yuzawa.

More snow fell through the day yesterday and I measured 8cm by 4pm. This morning there was another 6cm on the ground and so that's 14cm to add to the report.

Kagura are reporting 10cm of fresh snow and Maiko Snow Resort are reporting 10-15cm.

It is still snowing now so there's a bit more on the way today though we are expecting it to stop sometime this afternoon.

And tomorrow should be calm and sunny so an excellent Saturday should be on offer at all the resorts around Yuzawa. Come early to beat the crowds.

Just two resort-specific notes:

It looks like the Tashiro part of Kagura is going to be closed again today along with parts of the main Kagura area. Due to windy conditions up there.

And the South Area of GALA Yuzawa may be closed due to heavy snowfall of the last few days. If you are planning on going to GALA and enjoy that part, best to get the latest from them. Will report on that again early tomorrow morning.
