Sorry for the delay, I was planning on posting this earlier.

It has been a generally bright day here in Yuzawa, no new snowfall since this morning and perhaps just a chance of a thin layer overnight tonight - up to 5cm higher on the mountains.

It is a chilly evening, around 1 degrees at the moment and not quite icy on the roads. It probably won't dip below zero tonight and unfortunately it does look like it will rain tomorrow around town and in lower areas. Hopefully not too heavy, not too long, and hopefully it will be snow.... but things are going to keep quite mild for the weekend. We'll just have to see the cards that nature deals come tomorrow. Higher up would certainly be the place to be to have the best chance of good conditions.

Sunday is looking more promising and we have been talking about the chance of some decent snowfall. It still looks to be on, perhaps later in the day and into Monday when it should be colder.

Tomorrow is the first day of the season for GALA Yuzawa, NASPA Ski Garden and Ipponsugi in Yuzawa as well as Muikamachi Hakkaisan and Chateua Shiozawa in neighbouring Minamiuonuma - leaving only a few skijo in the region yet to open.

Resorts around town have been in 'part open' mode, though for this weekend and going into Christmas they will be trying to open up as much as possible. While cover is good, we're still fairly thin on the ground snow-wise, and so everyone is looking forward to that dump of fresh snow to let more open up.
