Good morning from Yuzawa.

A fine morning yesterday with the sun coming out and then more cloud moving in again later in the day.

This morning started off with clearer skies again, but it has clouded over pretty quickly and as of 8:30am snow has started falling close to town level and snow is forecast for the day and into tomorrow.

GALA Yuzawa is going to be closed today due to forecast windy conditions through the day. Hopefully they will be back up and open tomorrow.

Other resorts appear to be opening as normal.

It's not particularly cold this morning but we are expecting winds to increase as the days go on and possibly some quite heavy snowfall too.

See you tomorrow.

Update about 30 minutes after above initial report was posted:

That snow has stopped and there's even a bit of sun. Difficult to read what is going to happen today - I'll update you tomorrow!
