Good morning from Yuzawa.

Fresh snow, and snow falling from the skies - and due to continue through into early tomorrow morning, easing off as that timeline progresses. According to the forecast.

Early this morning Kagura are reporting 15cm of fresh on their slopes; our Naeba report is saying 18cm; the NASPA Ski Garden resort is reporting 20cm of fresh snow (with up to 30cm on higher areas).

I am measuring 14cm (updated since original report as I feel my original number was not representative).

And here's to more in the report tomorrow!
