Good morning from Yuzawa.

It's a beautiful morning here with clear skies over Yuzawa and the sun is out.

Some snow was falling yesterday and at times it was coming down fairly nicely, but in the end it didn't really end up giving us much in terms of fresh cm.

Here's what the resorts are reporting this morning:

Ishiuchi Maruyama: 5cm
Kagura: 1cm

10cm or so outside SJ HQ in Minamiuonuma, but less than that to measure in Yuzawa which is what is going on the report of course.

So sunny blue skies this morning and it should be a fine day. It's quite chilly for the start of the day but due to warm up to perhaps around +6C in town later on (back to colder conditions tomorrow).

I was outside just before and it felt a little windy. But it looks like all ski resorts should be open as planned this morning.

No excuse not to get out there this morning. Some ski resorts are even giving away chocolate for Valentines Day!

I had to go over to Tokamachi yesterday (to the north of Yuzawa and about 45 minutes by car) and there was a lot of snow falling there; it was really coming down hard. I called my friend who lives over there last night and they told me that there was probably 40-50cm of fresh snow on the top of their car from yesterday. Another example of how the snow clouds have been tracking just to the north of us more than a few times this season. (It's worth pointing out that Tokamachi always traditionally gets heavy snow, but oftentimes we get it at pretty much the same time). Please don't misunderstand - we have still got a lot of snow... just pointing out a pattern that has been happening a few times this season and that if those clouds made their way down here every time, we'd have a serious amount this season!
