Good morning from Yuzawa.

And we have some fresh snow. Not a huge amount - just a few cm on the ground around town - but things are looking white once again.

Yesterday, after I posted my report Kagura were reporting 3cm of fresh snow up there... and this morning they are reporting another 10cm of fresh at Kagura and 5cm at Mitsumata.

Temperatures aren't likely to rise much about 2C today so it should be keeping cold.

We're probably going to get some sunshine during the day tomorrow and slightly warmer conditions, with a return to snow on Friday. Early next week is also looking positive for some decent snowfall... let's hope it happens.

From Saturday, Naeba, the Tashiro area of Kagura, Iwappara and Joetsu Kokusai are planning to open. The first two are pretty much definitely going to happen; the latter two will depend on snowfall. With very little snow on those slopes just at the moment, we'll need some decent snow for them to get going. It's not impossible, but I wouldn't bet on it!

Keep your eye on the 6-day forecast pages for the resorts --- you can find them in the right hand side column of this report page.
