Thankfully the wet day of yesterday is now behind us and this morning while generally just cloudy early on, we do have light snow falling in higher areas. It's definitely colder than yesterday as well which is something of a relief.

The winds have dropped down as well since yesterday though still moderate in places, but Gala Yuzawa is open today only the gondolas and a few lifts at Naeba affected this morning it seems.

Tomorrow sees the top lift at Kagura opening up for the first time this season.

We should have snow falling over the weekend, but it's unclear really how much we can expect. I'll be posting another update this evening to this Yuzawa Now page with the latest news and forecast for the weekend.


5pm update

OK here we are with the evening update after a generally just cloudy day. A few spots of rain/sleet at times in town but thankfully that was kept to a real minimum. A high of around +3 degrees around lunchtime today.

Tomorrow? It seems to be light snow up top with a chance of sleet or perhaps rain falling lower down in town. We are looking at a high of around +4 degrees in town at the highest point tomorrow, so we could really do with that pushing down a bit. The forecast for tonight is just a few cm of snow in the mountains of Yuzawa before 9am, so for the most part weekenders are going to be playing in what we have now and keeping fingers crossed for real-time snow refreshes tomorrow morning! Let's hope so.

The snow walls around town have noticeably become lower though with the weather we have seen over the last week or so and there is no doubt that snow conditions will have taken a hit as well. The better snow conditions can be found higher up.

Of course, this is all in the interests of proving clear and honest information, not trying to be a downer at all - it's still great to get out on the slopes, we are just spoilt by often fantastic conditions especially this season! Hope you have a great weekend if you are in the area.
