Morning from Yuzawa.

It was another fine spring like day yesterday with at time hazy skies, sunshine and a high of just over 11 degrees in Yuzawa town. (!)

Clouds started forming in the late afternoon and later on it was raining. Just how much I am not sure and perhaps I don't want to know!

This morning it was raining early on, but that has now eased off. There is more cloud around today and the sun is making an appearance as well. As of 9am it is 3C degrees. Rain is actually on the local forecast at times during the day but for the moment it looks like those clouds are tracking to the north of the valley here and we can expect more sun than rain.

There is a chance of some light snowfall overnight tonight and for tomorrow during the day generally cloudy conditions are forecast.

The most interesting part of the forecast is later in the week - decent snowfall as we enter the weekend? Let's hope so. Snow is due as well as a return to something more like normal winter temperatures as well.

As I said yesterday: with the lack of fresh snow, warm temperatures and rain... all of that is affecting the snow that we do have on the ground. It depends on where you are of course, but generally lower areas are now increasingly 'patchy' with ground visible in some places and things still sticking up out of the snow. These things should really be buried in deep snow by now.

Unfortunately, some resorts are having to scale back with more courses closing due to the snow conditions. It's a situation that is changing during a day even and so almost impossible to keep a track of with every resort, so if you are planning on being in the area I suggest you check with the official websites of the resorts for the latest.

Hopefully of course that will soon not be a concern. For now though, higher resort areas have more snow and are enjoying the better snow cover.

Resort official snow depths (Tuesday 5th January 2016) and any specific news:

All resorts in the area are now generally open for the season, though please note that some areas and courses are not open. Generally steeper slopes that need more snow are still closed. The lack of fresh snow and warm conditions over the last few days also means that some lower areas are getting increasingly patchy.
