Morning everyone from Yuzawa.

Fine weather yesterday and relatively mild - almost felt a bit spring-like out there on lower slopes certainly at Ishiuchi where I was and I heard the same from a few friends. Higher slopes faring better in terms of snow condition.

Lots of people are continuing to arrive in Yuzawa this weekend and that will only continue as we approach New Year.

Anyway, this morning has started mostly grey and overcast.

By the end of the day or early tomorrow, the start of what we hope is a good winter storm should happen with decent snowfall forecast Monday through Thursday. There might also be strong winds as well at times so need to keep an eye on that.

In fact, this morning GALA Yuzawa are noting that strong winds are forecast for later on in the day - and that might mean an early closing.
