Good morning from Yuzawa.

It was snowing for most of the day yesterday - light at times, heavier at times - and I have measured an additional 9cm to add to the reports. So, fairly decent - though we of course need more. This morning it has been snowing lightly but easing off and we are expecting a generally cloudy day today with the temperature not getting much above zero.

There is some sun on the forecast for tomorrow and some conflicting views on what to expect around Wednesday; it looks likely that it will get a bit milder, maybe some rain in town, snow higher (?)... followed by snow later in the week. So we'll just have to wait and see what happens and hope for the best.

This morning Kagura are reporting 10cm of fresh snow and they are going to be opening up the Panorama course; details below.

As I mentioned yesterday, Tashiro is now planning to open from Saturday. Iwappara and Joetsu Kokusai are ready to open as soon as there is enough snow and there's a bunch of other resorts hoping to get going this weekend.

Just for information, yesterday afternoon Maiko Snow Resort were reporting 50cm snow depth on their upper area; Ishiuchi Maruyama were reporting 20-30cm. Hopefully it'll be a bit more than that now.
