Good morning from Yuzawa.

After that beautiful day yesterday, no new snowfall to report this morning... but it's on the way.

Yes, while there was some cloud to be seen at times it was generally clear blue skies yesterday with the sunshine warming things up after that cold start to the day.

This morning we are starting once again with sunny blue skies but things are due to change and as soon as the late morning or early afternoon. Snow should be falling by this afternoon and maybe - hopefully - some heavy snow will be falling from the skies tonight. Bring it on!

The 2016 Alpine Skiing World Cup event will be held on the slopes of Naeba between 12th-14th February. Let's hope we get lots of snow to help those folk with their preparations. (Unfortunately, right now it is still looking like temperatures are going to rise over the weekend with rain falling. Please... no!

Fingers crossed everyone.
