Yesterday afternoon there was snow up high and some new snow to play in, with rain falling lower down at town level.

Those clouds have cleared up now and although the forecast is for cloud it is actually a fine and sunny morning once again with blue skies for the most part. So looks like another of those days to be out on the slopes and get some sun - remember the sunscreen.

Gala Yuzawa are once more closed today with their website stating that forecast stronger winds this afternoon are the reason.

While it doesn't look like it will get that cold tomorrow, there is snow/sleet forecast for tomorrow.


Later update:

It was a fine day all day, becoming gradually more cloudy in the afternoon. Some of the slopes were looking quite busy as well, as you might expect for a peak season weekend.

It may only be late January, but it was very much like a spring day today - both in terms of the weather and snow conditions. Higher up at places like Kagura the snow is generally holding out fairly well, but lower slopes at town level are once more getting in real need of a topup of fresh snow.

There is hope that we will get that snowfall tomorrow, with snow forecast from the morning through until the evening. After that in the longer term forecast there is snow forecast from Thursday to Sunday. So lets hope that the forecast is right this time and the weather cooperates - we really do very much want to bring you exciting news of huge dumps....

Just a general comment about the season so far. There have recently been numerous stories on the local news about the surprisingly mild winter that we have been experiencing this season - and how some ski resorts in other regions of Niigata have not yet been able to open at all this season, and the implications that the current situation will have on the length of the season. We are probably usually spoilt with the huge amounts of snow in an average year here (and we certainly where with the huge snowfalls we got last year). And compared to some destinations, the conditions are still decent - but we certainly do not have anywhere near the 'normal' amount of snow that we are used to. (That applies not just to Yuzawa but many other snowy regions of Japan this season). Everyone is trying to be positive and hold out for some decent and regular snowfall in February.

Anyway, fingers crossed everyone!!
