Good morning from Yuzawa.

The day started off with those lovely clear skies yesterday, but by mid-morning things were changing with cloud appearing... and eventually rain falling in the afternoon. And quite heavily at times unfortunately.

We were hoping for snow overnight but that didn't happen - well, not down in town anyway. Kagura are this morning reporting 3-5cm of fresh snowfall while Maiko Snow Resort are reporting just a dusting. That probably gives you a good idea of the range of how much fresh snow to expect out there today.

Very light snow is trying to fall right now in places at town level and so surely higher up on the ski slopes, but it's not the kind of snow that will bring us any fresh cm.

Heavier snow might be coming our way tonight so let's see if we can get a good refresh by the morning.

For now though snow conditions will be how you might expect them to be after the warmth and rain of the previous days, with better conditions the higher you go.
