Good morning from Yuzawa.

More snow fell yesterday during the day and there's an additional 10+cm overnight, for a total of 22cm for todays report. We have enjoyed getting a lot of snow over the last few days, so conditions should be really good today. Great to see those snow walls by the side of the road refreshed and bumped up once again.

The Southern Area of GALA Yuzawa is open again from today.

It looks like the Tashiro Area of Kagura is going to be closed. The reason being given seems to be a kind of vague 'staff feeling unwell', and as far as we can tell there's not re-opening date set. Will try to find out more on that today.

Other than that, ski areas should be opening as normal this morning.

A few events are happening today, including a '111th year of skiing in Japan' kind of event at NASPA Ski Garden (today and tomorrow). Various events are lined up involving some celebs types and character mascots appearing.

There is also a bunch of firework displays due to be set off this evening in what is being called 'Yuzawa Nanairo Fuyu Hanabi' (seven colours winter festival) event. Here's the timetable for the fireworks:

6:00pm: GALA Yuzawa
6:30pm: Yuzawa Kogen
7:00pm: Iwappara
7:30pm: NASPA Ski Garden
8:00pm: Ipponsugi
8:30pm: Yuzawa Park

Let's fireworks! The weather is forecast to just be cloudy for this evening. Tomorrow we are probably going to have some clearer and brighter skies with the sun making an appearance in the morning.
