Good morning from Yuzawa and Happy Christmas!

We would all prefer much more snow, of course, but what can you do! I promise to be chirpy and cheerful this morning!

It was trying to snow at times during the day yesterday down in town (more successfully snowing higher up and I noticed over at Naeba too), though it never really got going so while there was probably a few more cm at higher elevations there is none to report at town base.

It is a beautiful clear and sunny Christmas morning. There is layer of frost on the car windscreen and a moderate southerly wind.

Just taking a moment to take in the beauty of our mountains.

Good news this morning is that GALA Yuzawa is opening their Melody and Entertainment courses this morning - so you can ski and snowboard at GALA again now. They are reporting 30cm of snow; so it's not deep and there may be bushes. But it's open and available!

Yuzawa Kogen is operating the Yuzawa Kogen Ropeway and they have a sledding play area open but note that there are no skiing or snowboarding courses open there yet.

Have yourself a merry day wherever you may be.
