It's a very good morning to you all from here in Yuzawa.

Now this is more like it!!

Loads of snow has been falling in the region since yesterday morning.

It's one of those days where it is difficult to put one number on it, but I'm just going to have to go with how much I have measured... 54cm.

Kagura this morning are reporting 50-60cm of fresh snow, and I suspect there is actually probably more than that up there.

It has been pretty much snowing for most of the time since my report yesterday - sometimes lightly sometimes very heavily and so it has been building up nicely.

Snow is forecast for the morning easing off by evening and tomorrow should be cloudy with perhaps some sun.

This feels like winter - proper this time - and hopefully we won't see our plant pots in the garden again until April!

Excellent.

:)

Excite resort opening news - as we have it this morning:

Maiko Snow Resort have announced that they will be opening tomorrow (Friday). They plan to have their Gondola as well as the two Okusoeji lifts operating - 6 courses will be available.

A bunch of ski resorts were hoping to open this weekend and it's full on bata-bata (people running around in panic!) right now with this snowfall arriving and decisions being made.

We will be trying to collect as much information as possible today and tomorrow morning and hope to bring you more details in the next report. Be sure to tune in!
