Yesterday was a strange one weather-wise. We went from heavy snowfall early on with poor visibility to much clearer conditions in the afternoon and with much less wind. Those braving the early conditions were treated to much better conditions and some great views with the added dramatics of lingering clouds in the afternoon. Obviously differing depending on where you were. By evening though we were back to snow and in some places it was really coming down last night, the result of which is another 25cm of snow on the top of my car this morning.

There are signs that things might be clearing up - even some blue sky over Naeba early on this morning - and I'll post an update to this Yuzawa Now page this evening with an update and the latest for the weekend... right now looks like we might even get to see the sun, especially on Sunday.

6:30pm update

Well, that wasn't expected. Snow early on this morning, but by 11am there was blue sky over Yuzawa and by early afternoon there were hardly any clouds remaining up there at all and it had turned into a beautiful blue-sky day with the sun shining down. Everywhere around town looked amazing - with all the heavy snowfall we have had, it's all stacked up everywhere and looking very picturesque.

Snow conditions out on the slopes were great today too as expected. Really great snow, and it should be the same for the weekend as well.

After the forecast being so wrong today, I hardly want to mention what it has lined up for tomorrow but... the general consensus seems to be clear early on but clouding over with the chance of light snow. If you are coming to Yuzawa for one day over the weekend I would choose Sunday as it looks like it should be a clear day like today. Disclaimer - don't blame us if it isn't! Looks like it will be getting milder as well Sunday/Monday. Hopefully not too mild as we want the snow conditions to keep good as long as possible of course.

Have a fun weekend wherever you choose to be.
