It's a stunner of a morning here in Yuzawa.

Yesterday saw clouds moving in gradually after the fine start and even an attempt at snow falling. In keeping with the 'odd' theme to the season so far, on the news we saw that Tokyo got a bit of snowfall and there was also fairly heavy snow falling to the north of us in Niigata City. It's wasted up there, bring it down here...

This morning the clouds are still feeling some kind of allergy to our valley - once again staying to the north of our region - and we have clear blue skies all around. Beautiful! The sun is out and it's just a beautiful morning - the kind we would really be loving if we had a few more metres of snow lying around!

The really good thing this morning other than the views is that it is cold.

It was cold last night and it is cold this morning. And there was actually a dusting of snow around places as well as a frost early so hopefully that might translate into some cm on upper areas. On checking it looks like Kagura are reporting just a dusting while Maiko Snow Resort are reporting 2-3cm.

The varied forecasts all agree that we should get some fresh snow tomorrow, but disagree on when it might arrive - this afternoon? tonight? tomorrow?

I'll give you the latest of course tomorrow morning.

For now though it's a very fine morning to be out on the slopes.
