Good morning from Yuzawa.

There was more light snowfall during the day on and off yesterday and it didn’t really amount to much in terms of new cm, and there was even some sunshine at times in places. It remained quite cold too and didn’t get too far above zero which was a good thing. Visitors for the weekend (and the ski resorts themselves) will be thankful for that delivery of snow after what we got yesterday!

This morning, it is sunshine from the start. A beautiful day is on the cards.

We have been expecting warmer conditions this weekend and it still looks like what we are going to get. By lunchtime it might be as warm as 10C in town as the sun gets to work.

On Sunday the freezing level will zoom right up to around 3500m and we might experience temperatures even above 15C! That’s going to melt some snow and boggle some minds.

Very happily, come Monday it should start getting colder and we might get some fresh. Possibly even heavy snow in higher elevations. That’s more like it!

It’s the 66th Yuzawa Snow Festival in town tonight. If you are interested in checking it out, head over to the West side of the station and follow the people towards Yuzawa Kogen and the Nunoba slopes. Festivities are due to begin at 6pm with fireworks around 8:40pm.

Please note:

The official snow depth info below has not been updated today. Those updates will resume tomorrow.
