Morning from Yuzawa. It feels like what I am going to write is similar to yesterday.

The forecast was for snow or sleet, but we got clear blue skies. A few white clouds around in the afternoon here and there, but they were never threatening snow. A beautiful day for what that's worth! I was watching the news last night and reading the Zao Now report - looks like those snow clouds have really come up with the goods up there in Yamagata...

Anyway, the local forecast for town today is rain followed by snow tonight and a high of around 6 degrees. Just been outside and what we have for the moment is mostly cloudy; in fact the sun has just started shining through from behind a cloud right now.

The forecast still also has snow likely over the next few days. That's all I'll say on that, until my report tomorrow!

So from today Kagura is going back to having the 1500m course open and the quad lift moving - the snow making machines have been busy helping out there. Not the best of conditions of course, they are saying that the course is 10-30m in width.

I hope to bring more snowy like news tomorrow.
