Good morning from Yuzawa.

The snow hasn't stopped yet!

There were a few times during the day yesterday when it eased off, only to come back.

Result? I have measured another 32cm of snow on the ground. That means that I have measured over 1.5m of snowfall over the last 4-5 days!

!

Locals are getting tired having to 'deal' with it all, but I'm sure generally happy that we have been blessed with all this snow. It's good for now and for later on in the season.

So here is what ski resorts are reporting this morning.

- Kagura is reporting 20-30cm of fresh snowfall (which kind of seems low...)
- Maiko Snow Resort is reporting 20cm of fresh snowfall
- Ishiuchi Maruyama is reporting 40cm of fresh snowfall

So yes, it is still snowing this morning and it is still quite windy. It is still cold as well.

When is this going to stop? Well, perhaps tomorrow will see an end to the snow falling and it will start being not quite as cold as it has been; so it looks like today should be the tail end of this huge delivery of snow.

Conditions today should be great but with the continued snow, cold and limited visibility... it won't be everyone's cup of tea.

But once things do eventually calm down, conditions should be fantastic in anyone's book.
