Good morning from Yuzawa.

It's another fine morning here. Not a cloud in the sky, in fact. Nice and calm. Lovely.

Kagura remains open of course and they are reporting 50-70cm depth of snow.

There isn't much potential for snow on the forecast, not until at least the end of the week anyway. More of a chance of sunnier skies and a bit of a warm up mid week too and perhaps some rain before the next snow arrives.

Patience!

In the meantime, there's always Kagura. They haven't said yet if there will be any changes to operations from tomorrow (being a weekday), so I'll update the report tomorrow morning with confirmation of what plans to be open.

Okutadami Maruyama isn't exactly in the Yuzawa region - more like an hour or so drive away to the north, but still in Niigata Prefecture. That ski hill usually opens on the 23rd November for some early skiing. They have delayed opening due to lack of snow, and not yet open. I thought I'd just mention that.
