Good morning from Yuzawa.

It's a bit... dark... this morning. Moody.

There's a bit of a frost on the car windscreen this morning.

It is just cloudy right at the moment, but already raining just to the north in Minamiuonuma. It should either be raining or snowing here soon - almost certainly starting as the former in town, but by later on we should be seeing some white falling and hopefully some snow overnight.

As much as I'd love to be able to report a forecast that shows loads of snow, it doesn't look like it's going to be much. Let's hope we have a nice surprise.

Maiko Snow Resort were hoping to open tomorrow (Friday), and they are going to make an announcement later today - I'll let you know about that tomorrow.

No other news to share with you yet from resorts planning to open from Saturday. It clearly isn't going to happen for lower ski resorts.

As a recap, here are the resorts that hoped to open from Saturday:

- GALA Yuzawa
- Kagura (via Tashiro)
- Kandatsu Snow Resort
- Ishiuchi Maruyama
- Yuzawa Kogen
- Yuzawa Nakazato

The Yuzawa Now report tomorrow may be a bit later than usual as we check up on as many available details as possible.

For the moment, part of Kagura and Naeba remain open.
