Good morning from Yuzawa.

It was day of snow and wind yesterday for the most part, and those strong winds blowing around the snow that was falling - perhaps making it difficult to put a number on... our measuring points however had 9cm of snow by 6pm (I'm guessing probably more than that in some places) and then another 28cm of snow this morning, so a total if 37cm.

Here's what resorts are reporting this morning too:

Kagura: 30-40cm
Maiko Snow Resort: 30cm

So a decent amount of fresh snow wherever you are in the area this morning.

Happily this morning the wind doesn't seem to be causing problems and apparently all ski resorts are opening as planned. It is still snowing and likely to continue through the day until later this afternoon or this evening.

Tomorrow a cloudy start is forecast but by the end of the day snow should be falling once again and continuing through at least Friday and perhaps into the weekend.
