Good morning from Yuzawa.

Yesterday after that cold frosty start the sun was out and it got milder in the afternoon. Beautiful day.

Tomorrow is Friday --- the Friday that we have been looking too for our snowfall. And it still looks like it is going to happen. There is a good chance that we get rained on overnight tonight and perhaps also by the time I write my next report, but by afternoon the snow should be falling and the forecast still tells us to expect a decent amount of it.

Let's hope it is the turning point!

A few resorts seem to be trying to open up non-skiing facilities, but for the moment skiing and snowboarding is available at Kagura (mostly open), Naeba and GALA Yuzawa (both part open). Details below.

I might delay my report tomorrow morning, depending on what the weather is dealing early on. Come on!!!!
