Good morning from Yuzawa.

Light snow was falling for lots of the time during the day yesterday though it didn't amount to that much; and I'm happy to report more than was perhaps expected overnight with snow on the ground again this morning. Still not a huge amount but resorts appear to be reporting 5-10cm of snowfall.

Kagura: 5cm
Ishiuchi Maruyama: 10cm
Maiko Snow Resort: 15cm

With a few from yesterday I am measuring 9cm this morning.

Snow isn't expected to keep falling for long this morning, easing off leaving us with just cloudy skies. Maybe if we are lucky a bit of sun later on. That is the forecast.

But actually, as I am about to post this report approaching 8am, there are already some blue skies starting to appear over Minamiuonuma just to the north of Yuzawa and the sun is peeking through... so it may well end up a fine day weather wise.

With that bit of fresh snow, there should be nice conditions to enjoy this morning.

The forecast for the weekend is a return to more snow falling and perhaps some windy/stormy conditions. So come prepared!

There are a lot of visitors to Yuzawa from overseas at the moment, many of them celebrating the Chinese New Year holidays.

A very Happy Chinese New Year!

This weekend is also the Tokamachi Snow Festival which is always worth a visit if possible with events and impressive snow sculptures. Tokamachi city is about 30km to the north of Yuzawa.
