Hello and good morning from Yuzawa.

It's really nice to see a layer of snow on the ground and on top of the car this morning... around 3-5cm around town areas, with more on the slopes as you go higher.

Here is what resorts are reporting:

Kagura (Kagura Area and Mitsumata Area) - 10cm
Kagura (Tashiro) - 20cm
Maiko Snow Resort - 10-15cm

There's a lot of cloud around still, but things look like they might be clearing up and the sun is starting to show through.

So it should be a good early morning with that fresh snow to play in. Still a chance of more snow tonight and tomorrow as well according to the forecasts.

Things should clear up for the weekend with fine weather currently forecast.

LATE SEASON REPORTING
The individual Now reports will continue in each area until the season in that place closes - some will continue daily, some will become less than daily once we get into April.

Once the season has finished everywhere, we will be adding a general season wrap up to each of the reports, where we will also answer questions and comments that we regularly get sent. Some do keep on coming back! The end of season message will be up at the end of Golden Week in early May.

Thank you for reading.
