Morning from Yuzawa.

Yesterday remained 'wet' for longer than we would have hoped in town, but eventually it did turn into snow. Overnight we have had a fairly decent amount on the ground - our measuring point in Yuzawa shows 16cm and to the north near Ishiuchi about 12cm.

Kagura this morning are reporting 30cm of fresh snowfall and Maiko Snow Resort are reporting 40cm (presumably up top).

This morning snow clouds are with us and light snow has been falling but it's a bit on and off for the moment. Steady snowfall throughout the day is however forecast so that is what we should expect.

It looks like Kagura is again being affected by wind conditions - the Tashiro area and the Number 4 and 5 lifts at Kagura will be closed. At the start of the day Kagura will be open from the Mitsumata Ropeway to the Kagura Number 1 lift, subject to change.

GALA Yuzawa is open though it looks like the South Area will not be available today and the Gondola may need to run at slower speeds depending on the wind.

Other resorts around the area appear to be opening as planned at the start of the day.

Keep an eye out though - as of 9am it has suddenly got rather wild out there with snow and stronger wind... more lifts may be affected

The forecast still looks positive for regular snowfall this week as well - perhaps with a break in the daytime tomorrow and Friday.
