Winter is truly back with us again, and causing more than a bit of chaos as well.

There have been avalanches at 4 resorts in the town over the last 24 hours - Ludens, GALA Yuzawa, Yuzawa Nakazato and Naeba, involving a total of 25 people (both resort staff and skiers/boarders) - perhaps lucky that there has been only one serious injury so far. Route 17 has also been affected with it being closed for a period. There has also been some problems on the train lines, with a train apparently derailing just to the north of Yuzawa near Ishiuchi leaving 140 passengers stranded for a number of hours - that situation is not yet cleared up and so travel by local trains will be affected today.

It's obvious that with the huge amounts of snow in the region resorts are having trouble keeping up with things and extra care must be taken if you decide to venture out onto the slopes - some of these avalanches are happening within resort areas.

The snow is still coming down this morning and with it very cold temperatures and some gusty winds at times - not the most pleasant of days to be out on the snow.

In resort news, Naeba are not yet opening up any of their courses in order to go out and check the runs and see if they think it is safe enough to open - they say that they may open later on depending on what they find out there.

Gala has closed off the connections with Ishiuchi Maruyama and Yuzawa Kogen and only the central area and part of the northern area will be open.

Only the Mitsumata area of Kagura will be open today.

All in all, perhaps a day best left for a soak in the onsen! We'll update the page later on hopefully with more news.

Yuzawa Now ski lift operation notes:

Naeba closed until safety checks run. Only the Mitsumata runs of Kagura open and part of GALA. All resorts are officially open but may be limited due to bad weather conditions.
