Good morning from Yuzawa.

Light snow still falling here and while it has been snowing for large parts of the time since the report yesterday, there's not a huge amount of fresh to report.

Here's what resorts are reporting this morning:

Kagura: 15cm
Maiko: 10cm
Ishiuchi: 10cm

All in units of 5cm of course ;)

Yesterday evening 9cm of snow was moved off our measuring point and this morning there is another 7cm on there. So 16cm to report.

Just light snow for the moment but it might ease off during the day today. Some conflicting forecasts for tomorrow - some say snow, some say the chance of some sunshine.

I'll let you know!

We have been wondering what to do with the below information regarding each ski area.

Basically all of the ski areas in the region are now open... and open as 'normal'.

For some ski areas, that means that some lifts are being rested on weekdays - and that is and has always been the plan. For some ski areas, lifts are being rested for the whole season. Saying that, for example, 3 of 5 lifts are operating might make it appear that they are not 'fully open', when in fact they are open as they planned to be and all runs are accessible. And of course each ski area has it's own way of doing things.

So if there is no individual 'notes' in the list below, presume that are basically open as normal. We'll do what we can to make note of any significant news available in a morning.

We'll keep on thinking about how best to present information and will adjust again as we feel appropriate.
