Well this morning we awoke to a decidedly white Yuzawa. The snow managed to fall right down into town area overnight and although there isn't a huge amount - perhaps up to 5cm or so in places - it's great to see it white and feeling like winter.

Right now it is 2 degrees and just cloudy. It's actually quite bright and so things may well be clearing up a bit.

It's considerably colder up at Kagura with the resort reporting 5-10cm of fresh snow and a temperature of -8 degrees a little earlier this morning. With the gradual increase in snow up there they are trying to open up more and more of the resort. Today will see the Giant course open for the first time this season, so they have the Main Gelende, Giant Course, Panorama Course and Gondola Course open being services by the Gondola, the No1 quad and the No1 pair lift.

Over at Tashiro they have the No1 and No2 pair lifts moving as well as the No1 quad lift. Courses open at Tashiro are the Rakuraku course, Tashiro ladies course (though gents are welcome too!), No1 quad connecting course, Skyline course and Tashiro Arieska course.

Naeba operations remain the same, but they will surely be opening more up if and when they can.

Gala Yuzawa still has the 'mat' course open, but there is reportedly about 10cm of fresh snow on top.

As I write this some blue skies have appeared. We may get a small amount of snow again overnight tonight but tomorrow looks set to be a clear day with generally fine weather over the weekend lined up at the moment as well... so no big snow storm on the short term horizon just at the moment.
