Good morning from Yuzawa.

This morning Kagura are reporting 5cm of snowfall. GALA Yuzawa have added 10cm to their official snow depth. So it sounds like there's a (modest) layer of fresh snow out there on the higher slopes that remain open.

There's a thin layer on the base area of Naeba too, and clearly some at the (now closed) Yuzawa Kogen.

The snow didn't quite stick down to town level, but it was trying to snow at times yesterday and noticeably quite cold.

On to this morning and we start the day with cloudy skies but we are expecting the sun to appear and clearer conditions with a high of around 8C, and tomorrow should be clear and sunny for the whole day (and a little warmer).

-----

NOTE:

A report will be written tomorrow morning (Sunday) but it might be evening before it appears on the website - or perhaps even Monday morning. This is due to some server maintenance work that is required tomorrow. We'll get the report up as soon we can and sorry for the disruption.
