Good morning from Yuzawa.

It really does feel like winter again at the moment. There's fresh snow on the roads and there is snow hanging on the trees. It's cold too.

Get this - Kagura yesterday were reporting 40cm (40cm!!) (!) of fresh snowfall.

And this morning it looks like they are reporting 50cm. Ishiuchi Maruyama are reporting 40cm. These are really big numbers.

It was snowing (mostly) on and (sometimes) off for most of the day yesterday and there is a good layer fresh snowfall on the ground around town since yesterday. To the north in Minamiuonuma, a friend has just told me there's more than 30cm on the top of their car this morning.

I haven't taken a look back at the archives of late but I can't remember an early April like this.

It is still snowing and it is due to be snowing for at least this morning, perhaps easing off later in the day or tonight. And tomorrow we can expect clearer skies, sunshine and warmer temperatures.

So might this snowfall be the last of the season? I think possibly yes, but you never know... and the forecast does still show signs of some more potential snow. Let's see. For now, those lucky enough to time a visit at the moment - well done!

Today is the last day of the season for the Yuzawa Nakazato resort. I bet they didn't think that they'd be serving up fresh snow on this last day!
