It's not quite as cold as yesterday morning but other than that a similar kind of look to the morning with snow falling and a nice new portion of fresh snow delivered to the slopes of Yuzawa and nearby. I had to move at least 20cm of snow off the top of my car this morning - resorts reporting about the same, including Kagura which for once does not seem to have got 'the most' out an evening snowfall. That mild spell we had last week seems a distant memory now.

As yesterday, a few restrictions up at Kagura, but other than that it doesn't look like resort operations are affected at all by this current snowfall. There may be a few lifts moving slower than usuall but generally it's open as normal.

Snow is basically on the forecast for the next 6+ days, and while it might not be as heavy as it has been since yesterday there doesn't look like there are going to be much chance of clear weather in the coming week. It will be cold but not mad cold - right now it is minus 2 in Yuzawa and probably stay around that for the day. It doesn't look like winds will cause much of a problem either which is good news.

For those coming to the Yuzawa area for the weekend, you'll be finding lots of fresh new snow. It is going to be a good one. Be careful out there!

Evening update

Pre-weekend quick update. Lots and lots of snow falling today, I would say there was getting on for 40cm of snow on the car just a short while ago when I had to go clear it. The Niigata local forecast has us down for another 'up to 40cm' again overnight.

Actually it seems to be easing off again as I write this report but no doubt it will soon be snowing again. Needless to say, snow conditions out on the hills tomorrow is going to be top notch with fresh new snow pretty much everywhere you go in Yuzawa or Mimamiuonuma. Hopefully winds won't spoil the party but for now it doesn't sound like it's going to be much of an issue tomorrow.

Have fun!
