It's good news friends! Yes, the snow is coming down in style this morning and we are back in full-on winter mode in Yuzawa. There wasn't a huge amount this morning either really early on - perhaps 10cm or so - but since then it is really snowing heavily now with lovely big flakes coming down at some speed. Visibility is generally going to be very poor on the mountains today as everywhere is totally white. Great news that we are getting the snow we all wanted to see, but perhaps not as good for some people out there - if you brave the conditions though, the snow should be untracked, soft and light.

It's about -4 degrees at the moment in Yuzawa and will probably stay around that for the day. Winds aren't too strong really considering the snowfall conditions at the moment and apparently not affecting resort operations, though it seems the courses connecting Tashiro with Kagura are closed this morning as they cope with the new snowfall.

Snowmen lined up on the forecast right into next week and so we can hopefully expect some impressive new snowfall. It's going to stay cold as well so if you are planning on being here over the weekend keep all that in mind. Snow conditions should be great for the weekend.

Evening update

An evening update for you. Difficult to put a number on it, but lots of snow today... perhaps 20-30cm or so in parts of Yuzawa, hearing of up to 40cm or so on the tops of cars in Tokamachi not too far away to the north - lower lying areas seem to be getting a lot of snow as well this time around.

The local evening forecast tells us that we can perhaps expect another 40cm or so before tomorrow morning.

Right now, the skies above Yuzawa and Minamiuonuma valley are actually clearing of cloud, and visibility is very good, but a lot can happen in 12 hours!
