Update: The Tashiro Area of Kagura is closed due to strong winds up there. Kagura is open up to the Kagura Number 1 romance pair lift, they might get the quad going if conditions allow. GALA Yuzawa and other resorts appear to be open as normal.

Good morning.

After that rather prolonged spell of mild (with a bit of rain added into the mix last night), it is sure good to see some fresh snow this morning.

Maiko Snow Resort is reporting 5-10cm and Kagura are reporting 10cm. I have measured 8cm. So that gives you a good idea of what to expect. Not enough to give us a deep fresh cover yet, but an improvement and hopefully we will get some more today (though I'm not sure we should expect too much).

The forecasts are still looking good for the chance of some fairly regular snow over the coming week.

It's noticeably colder too and temps today should remain just under zero.

Monday is a national holiday in Japan so the upcoming weekend is a long 3-day one for many. It's a busy one traditionally so come on nature.. bit more fresh please!
