It was all a bit crazy typical Snow Country heavy snow and congestion on the roads yesterday. With the expressway closed at times and the roads covered in snow, yesterday evening traffic conditions on the main roads around Yuzawa were really bad for a few hours there.

With the wind and everything it is difficult to put a number on the snow, but since yesterday morning I have had to move around 40cm off the top of the car. Resorts around town are reporting between 20cm and 40cm of new snowfall since yesterday morning so that sounds about right. More or less in places of course.

While the mad snowfall is fun to experience (though perhaps not if you are stuck in a traffic jam or waiting for a bus), I'm glad to report that this morning is less extreme conditions.

Snow is still falling here and likely to continue for the day, but there's less wind and resorts appear to be open as planned. Just a few lifts at Kagura and Naeba not operating early on but other than that close to fully open.

Of course yesterday some runs and resorts were closed and so today people will be able to get up there into the deepness that awaits. Going to be some incredible conditions today and tomorrow.

It's going to start warming up somewhat from tomorrow for at least a few days and we're probably going to see a fair bit of sun. Snow due back before the weekend though.

A great end to February. Sometimes at this time of year there's a distinct feeling of spring approaching, but happily this year we're not getting that yet. In fact, the snow piled up at the side of the roads is higher now than it has been all season and good to see it rising impressively now.
