I was hoping to bring news of huge amounts of fresh snowfall this morning, but.... it's clear and sunny!

Yes, we have beautiful blue skies over Yuzawa and there's hardly a cloud to be seen over this particular valley anyway. To the north it looks like there's a fair bit of cloud. Currently it is 1C with a high of 5C due later on.

No new snow overnight to report, but it was snowing for most of the day yesterday and so I have added a few cm to the numbers on this page.

Snow should be back though by the end of the day and snowfall along with cold temperatures are forecast for the weekend.

In resort news, from tomorrow the connecting course between the Kagura area and Tashiro areas will be open for the first time this season. This means that most of the Kagura resort will be open. Not quite all, but most of it. Certainly enough to have a fine day in that fresh snow. Both of the Ropeways at Kagura will be opening from 7:30am tomorrow morning. The Dragondola between Naeba and Tashiro should be up and running from Saturday 21st December.

Over at Naeba, lovely blue skies over that part of Yuzawa as well. They have the Number 4 pair lift moving today, possibly in celebration of the main base
hotel opening for winter.

Joetsu Kokusai in Minamiuonuma have actually opened a run this morning and Iwappara in Yuzawa are planning to be open tomorrow. Both are limited openings as things stand but if we do get snowfall tonight they will adjust as is possible.

Maiko Snow Resort are hoping to open tomorrow but it's borderline right now. Again, probably will depend on snowfall overnight.

I can tell that I'm going to be very busy tomorrow morning, and I'll try to bring you all the latest from around town.

Today's photos (below) were taken from the slopes of Joetsu Kokusai.
