A good morning to you from Yuzawa where it was snowing for large parts of yesterday and there has been 4cm or so more overnight as well.

Since my morning report yesterday I have measured an additional 11cm down here in town and I can see that early this morning Kagura are reporting 15-20cm of fresh and Maiko report 10cm so that will probably give you an idea of where we are this morning. Around 10cm of snow around town and up to 20cm in higher areas.

It is snowing lightly at the moment but fairly bright. The forecast tells us that the snow should ease off this morning and leave us with a cloudy day. I wouldn't be surprised if it cleared up further and ended up seeing some sunshine (but that is just a total guess).

We should be back to being snowed on tomorrow with heavy snowfall due tomorrow (Sunday) night into Monday and possibly windy/stormy conditions.

With the snowfall over the last run of days things almost feel something more like 'normal' now, I am happy to report (even though the level of snow piled up around town is clearly still less than usual of course). I was even out shovelling snow from around my house last night - something I'm usually not particularly happy to be doing but I enjoyed it last night.

Conditions on the slopes have have been very much improved, including lower areas which have also been snowed on, and I expect to find some very nice conditions out there this morning. Further heavy snow tomorrow will be most welcome!

The local forecast disagrees but the 6-day forecast below shows some sun Tuesday-Thursday. If that happens after snow tomorrow and Monday, I would expect those days to be close on perfect to hit the slopes.

Have a good weekend wherever you may be.
