After the rain of yesterday we were hoping for some snowfall at town level overnight... there was a sprinkling up top (and up to 5cm or so in Naeba), but no new snow to report in Yuzawa town this morning.

At the moment it is cloudy and actually quite bright - it looks like the sun might even make an appearance soon. It's fairly cold and it will probably only rise to around +4 degrees today.

It looks like tomorrow is going to be fine and sunny and warmer than today.

The Joetsu Kokusai resort just to the north of Yuzawa are today opening one course in the Atema section - this will be for hotel guests only, and only for today.

A look over at the forecast shows that the next likely snow is lined up for Friday (29th) and Saturday (30th). The New Year period is usually one of the busiest of the year and so everyone around here is getting increasingly anxious for the snow to fall and everywhere to be able to open before then.

To highlight the currently lack of snow situation, today on the news it mentioned Okutadami Maruyama - the resort about an hours drive to the north of the Yuzawa area. Okutadami usually has around three meters of snow around this time of the year - currently there is just 70cm. (The resort is currently open by the way).
