Good news it is!

Yes the snow has been coming down hard overnight and we wake to a very snowy morning in Yuzawa.

Strong winds were blowing about later on in the evening yesterday and the snow started falling. There must be about 30cm of new snow here in town areas and more on the mountain. Indeed up at Kagura which usually is the place that gets the most snowfall in the region, they are saying that half a metre of snow fell overnight. I'd imagine 30-50cm is the haul at most higher areas, but today the snow should be pretty great everywhere.

Strong winds are affecting operations in some of those higher elevations though. The Tashiro Ropeway at Kagura is not going to be open today (along with the Dragondola connecting Kagura with Naeba). Only part of Kagura (via Mitsumata) is also open and the top areas of Naeba are not open early on. All due to the wind. If they stay closed for the day, the people travelling up for the weekend will be as happy as tomorrow morning getting access to all that untouched!

It's currently about -4C in town.

The clearer weather we were expecting for the weekend seems to have been shunted back a day, as we have the snow to continue falling today and possibly into tomorrow. Clearer skies on Sunday. You never know though, tomorrow might end up clear as was originally forecast.

Whichever, it is going to be a good weekend here in Yuzawa and Minamiuonuma.
