Hello from Yuzawa and it is a much happier report this morning.

I have just taken measurements in three places and the verdict is... 26cm of fresh snowfall.

That's more like it! It's fantastic to a see a good new layer of snow on the ground, something that we usually take for granted here but are now perhaps leaning to appreciate all the more.

So at last, a nice decent amount of snow overnight after another day of snow falling yesterday without it making much of an impact in terms of cm. It must have been snowing pretty good overnight.

This morning here's what 'the resorts that report' are saying:

Kagura: 30-40cm of fresh snowfall
Naeba: 20-30cm of fresh snowfall
Maiko Snow Resort: 25cm of fresh snowfall

I would imagine most of the resorts around the valley will have all got at least 20cm of fresh on their slopes.

(Quite how Kagura get 40cm and not adjust their official snow depth is one of the mysteries that definitely needs solving!)

All areas appear to be open this morning with no wind issues.

It is still snowing this morning as well with snow forecast for the day and tomorrow too... and over the weekend as well. We have heard that before of course this season and been disappointed but perhaps this time it might be a different story. Look towards Sunday in particular for heavy snowfall.

Could this be the turning point of the season for us here in this region?
