Lots of lovely new snow to play in this morning. Snow moving machines and locals may well be busy shovelling it all about and clearing the roads but for those out on the hills today there should be some fine conditions to enjoy.

We have had perhaps 20-30cm or snow fall around town since yesterday and up at Kagura that resort is reporting 50-60cm of fresh snow. Nice. As predicted though, some blustery winds have arrived with the snow... though actually here in town right now it doesn't feel too bad.

Just a few resorts seem to be affected early on:

At Kagura, the Tashiro area is closed and the Mitsumata-Kagura area open from the Ropeway up until the No1 pair lift at Kagura. Naeba is also only part open this morning, though we can perhaps expect them to open up further later on.

The only other resort that seems to be affected at the moment is Yuzawa Kogen with the top runs not open at the time of writing. Again, could change with changing weather conditions.

Gala Yuzawa and other resorts seem to be open as normal.

Interesting weather this morning though actually. There have been a few times when things look like they might well clear up, only for the snow clouds to move back in quickly. But it's one of those days where you get the feeling it could go either way - even if the forecast is for snow throughout the day. We shall see! Snow on the forecast for tomorrow as well, though some local forecasts show the chance of glimpses of sun tomorrow.

Whatever, while visibility may be poor at the moment, and it might be windy, the snow conditions out there on all the slopes around Yuzawa today should be worth the effort!
