Hmmmm.

It has been raining this morning, quite heavy at times, though it seems to have stopped for the moment... hopefully for the day.

I see Kagura report a slight dusting of snow higher up and Naeba a bit of snow, perhaps GALA Yuzawa got a dusting too, but resorts around the town area have been rained on I'm afraid.

Forecast for the day is cloud and a high of around +7 degrees. Less wind this morning and it would seem all resorts will be open as planned.

Tomorrow is looking promising for some snowfall with lower temperatures.

Yesterday almost as soon as the report went up it carried on getting greyer and by 10am the skies were almost completely covered in an overcast-cloud cover.

It's always interesting to see how certain ski resorts come up and offer the clear truth, while others quite obviously 'shy away' from presenting it all up front when it's less than desirable. It's pretty annoying too. That's not a Yuzawa thing by the way, but a general observation. I have so much more respect for the former - the latter essentially lying to their customers.
