Good morning from Yuzawa.

The snow clouds are back this morning.

They were sort of back yesterday afternoon, though the snow was mostly very light and generally didn't give us much more than a dusting.

Interestingly, snowfall was still causing problems for the people to the north where they are getting lots of snow when they don't really expect or want it. I think pretty much everyone would prefer the snow come down here and deposit the snow on our mountains. (Though I am presuming/guessing that the ski resorts in the northern part of Niigata are enjoying a very good season this time round).

Anyway, back to this morning and here are the ski resort reports of fresh snowfall:

Ishiuchi Maruyama: 10cm
Maiko Snow Resort: 10cm
Kagura 3cm

I am measuring 7cm to add to the reports, and hopefully there will be more to add tomorrow with snow due to be falling through tonight.

It seems there is a decent chance of sunny skies tomorrow, so should make for a very nice mid week day out if you are so tempted!

If the webcams were any indication, most slopes were less busy yesterday than they were on Sunday; which will probably be a relief for the people out there.

Today we are back to a 'normal' weekday, albeit it being peak season, of course.
