An early report today as I plan to make another report this evening with the latest.

We had snow forecast overnight but it didn't come unfortunately - not down to town level anyway, the mountains seem to have got a dusting. As I write this it seems to be trying to snow, but nothing particularly convincing right now. Snow is forecast for the day though so I will update things later on this evening with the latest...

Evening update

It has certainly been a day of mixed weather conditions. Earlier on for a short while there this morning were blue skies and it was sunny over Yuzawa and Minamiuonuma and we were all wondering where this snow had gone to. Hearing about 10cm of snow falling in Niigata city didn't help but many times when Niigata gets snow it means that it is on it's way down here and this afternoon it started snowing properly in the area. Strong winds blowing around as well.

It has been snowing this afternoon then and there's probably about 5cm to show for it around town so far. The forecast is promising more snow overnight down to town level. It looks very promising in fact. I'm almost too scared to mention it, but the number 'up to 50cm' is being bandied around by the local forecast people. Now wouldn't that be nice! Let's keen our hats on and not get too excited just yet, but just hope in anticipation of good news tomorrow morning.

Right now - snowing, -1 degrees and a cold wind.

At the very least, more of Kagura and Naeba will be open. If we do get a good amount of snow though expect the other resorts that are on stand-by (see below) to get things moving tomorrow morning. Some of the resorts may not be able to get things going immediately but within a day or two.

Anyway, I'll try to get tomorrow mornings report up as soon as possible on gathering enough info.
