Last night we were expecting snow, right? It didn't quite turn out that way. For a short period yesterday late afternoon it was snowing/sleeting/raining but it pretty much eased off towards the end of the day and this morning instead of a good portion of new snow to boast about.... it's sunny!

[Kagura are reporting 10cm of fresh snow overnight and other resorts up to 5cm in the town area, so there was a slight snowfall on the mountains!]

So yes, the sun is out and blue skies in Yuzawa early on this morning. Apparently it is snowing to the north though and the snow is still on it's way to this region and the forecast is for snow all day - actually a lot of snow with an average of 40cm and a maximum of 80cm to fall in the region between now and tomorrow morning at 9am, so lets see how tomorrows report shapes up!

While there is a moderate wind in town, the wind seems to be causing all of Tashiro to be closed today and Mitsumata is only open from the Ropeway to the No1 pair lift at Kagura. All other resorts around Yuzawa town area are open as normal.

Here's to the snow coming later today!

PM update:

Clouds moved in one Yuzawa around lunchtime today.

This afternoon it really started snowing heavily to the north in Minamiuonuma with 20-30cm quickly building up and apparently more than a few accidents on the road as strong winds along with the snow made for some very poor visibility. Those conditions continue in Minamiuonuma but here in Yuzawa it hasn't really got going yet. It is snowing now but the heavy snowfall is still to arrive though we do have 30-50cm of snow forecast to fall between now and 9am tomorrow morning.

Gala Yuzawa has been closed and lifts up at Kagura and Naeba affected all day. If the winds continue tomorrow along with the heavy snow that is forecast, expect more of the same...
