Good morning from Yuzawa.

Snow down to town level this morning.... just about.

Kagura are reporting 15cm of fresh snowfall; Naeba are reporting 10-15cm; there's just a few cm of so down to town areas.

(Just for the record. It was rain last night so glad that it turned into snow. I've totally had my fill of rain for this year. It's starting to get really annoying.)

We are forecast sunshine tomorrow and milder temperatures again, but you all want really promising news and so:

HEAVY snowfall looks due for Friday. If Nature co-operates and the forecasts are right, it should be enough for ski resorts to open up.

For the moment and as far as I can tell, resort operations remain unchanged this morning. We will be checking once this report goes up and will update if there is anything to add.
