There has been more snow overnight - Kagura is reporting 60cm of snow since yesterday. There was about 20-30cm of new snow on the tops of cars this morning in the town area.

The winds aren't quite as strong as they were yesterday, though the current conditions are still affecting operations in some resorts - Kagura is opening only the Mitsumata area of the resort today (or at least early on) and thinking about opening the Kagura gondola, depending on the conditions as the morning progresses.

Gala Yuzawa is able to open today as well as other resorts and so things are a bit more normal this morning.

The snow is still falling and coming down fast at the moment and it's a cold -4 degrees. Snow is forecast for all of today, all tomorrow and into early next week. Whether it will remain like this is another matter, but we are certainly getting some good cms of new snow at the moment and conditions will be excellent out there.

We will update the page this evening.


PM update:

It has been snowing all day and since this morning there was about 20cm of snow on top of the car this evening. It has also been cold and the winds, while less than yesterday, have been blowing the snow around again. It's around -3 at the moment.

Kagura are now saying that they have had a meter of snow over the last two days. Nice!

(Official snow depths are taking a while to catch up with the snow, so that's why they aren't moving as fast as the snow is falling!)

It's not going to stop any time soon either - another 10-25cm on the official forecast for Yuzawa before the lifts open tomorrow morning, and the forecast remains "snow" all the way through tomorrow into Sunday. They have been known to be wrong, of course, but expect those conditions tomorrow. Would be good if it could ease off a little so we can all go out and enjoy it, but you'll hear no complaints from here!

You can also expect some very nice powder snow conditions as well - expect peak conditions.
