Good morning from Yuzawa.

Yesterday we enjoyed a bit of a break in the clouds during the daytime (after snow in the morning), but it was back to snow overnight.

I had brushed away 2cm of snow from the morning mid afternoon, and have just moved another 15cm this morning, giving me 17cm to put on the report this morning from town base. And the 'resorts that report' are saying 5-10cm (Kagura) and 10cm (Maiko). Interesting.

It is snowing now with heavy snow still due tonight - indeed, it's forecast for the snow to increase as the day goes on today. Wind doesn't look like it should be a problem so all ski resorts appear to be opening as planned.

There should be some big numbers tomorrow morning!

-----

It is very sad to hear the news of fatalities over in Myoko.

Take care out there.

-----

The Champion and Dolphin courses in the Maiko Area of Maiko Snow Resort are closed at the moment due to the Freeride Maiko 2019 event being held there today.
