Morning from Yuzawa.

And... it's a beauty.

It was snowing during the morning yesterday, though I don't have any new cm to report to you (there was surely a bit on the slopes).

This morning we have almost totally clear blue skies. There are just a few white small clouds in places; the mountains are looking magnificent.

It is cold too at the start of the morning, but it is going to be warming up and a very mild afternoon today - temperatures might be approaching 10C today in town, and will break through that tomorrow. That's much warmer than we'd like it to be, of course, and disappointing after we got our fresh snow on the ground. Let's hope that the forecasts are just a bit too pessimistic. The warmer spell is probably going to last through into the weekend and there is a chance of some rain showers in there too at times.

Happily, the forecasts show snow and cold once again from Monday.

Anyway, it should be a beautiful morning to be out on the slopes.
