Good morning from Yuzawa.

Some snow falling on the mountains yesterday, thought it was more... wet... down below.

This morning both Kagura and Maiko Snow Resort are reporting 5cm of fresh snow.

Kandatsu have increased their official snow depth by... 20cm. (I don't know the story behind that but with Kagura and Maiko both reporting 5cm, 20cm of fresh snowfall in a location that is basically in between those two resorts and close to town does seem... kind of unlikely).

But anyway, you can get an idea of the dustings and layer of snow on the images below. And fresh snowfall is always very welcome.

Lots of cloud still now but we might get some sunshine today before the clouds move in again tonight.

There is cold and snow on the forecast for tomorrow and it is once again looking quite promising. We can look forward to that. Need to watch out for potentially strong winds though.
