Good morning from Yuzawa.

The sun is out this morning. There's a kind of overcast thin cloud feel to the early morning and while temps were just under zero earlier on we are expecting another mild day. So we're not out of this mild spell just yet.

The snow outside my place this morning is... hard and crusty! I would imagine that nicely prepared groomed courses should be good for the knees early on. Snow conditions will change and soften up as the day warms, but we are really wanting and waiting for a new thick layer of fresh snow now.

The good news on that front is that tomorrow is going to be colder and we should be seeing a return of snow. The first overnight tonight and then a decent amount due around Saturday. That sounds good to me, let's hope it delivers.

Before that, remember the sunscreen and enjoy the morning.

From the weekend, the top Number 5 lift at Kagura will be open for longer - until 2pm.
