Resorts around town reporting 5cm of snow this morning - ranging from town level to Kagura. I'm putting 10cm though because that is how much was on my car this morning. Curious that the resorts seem to be under-reporting...

The very good news this morning though is that it is really snowing quite heavily right at the moment. Real Yuzawa-style, something we haven't seen enough of yet this season. Forecasts didn't really tell us to expect this but it's coming down good now. We just need it to last and bring us a good thick new layer - snow is forecast now for the day and to clear up later on to be followed by cloud overnight and then sun tomorrow. So it's all about how much we can get during the day today.

With the snow coming down as it is, visibility looks to be poor on all the resorts this morning. There's some wind at higher elevations but apart from the Dragondola connecting Naeba with Tashiro, resorts look open as normal.

After the busy long new year holidays we are back to a normal working week in Japan and so resorts will be getting into normal weekday mode from today. No doubt catching their breath after the crowds.

So tomorrow sun is forecast. After that, we're looking at Thursday for potential decent snowfall again.
