Updated at 9:45am

Good morning from Yuzawa.

Yesterday the sun was out and it was a beautiful day with just a bit of cloud appearing later on.

There is no fresh snowfall overnight and today is starting with mostly cloudy overcast skies. (As of 9:15am it had started snowing up at Naeba and higher elevations).

Alas, a southerly wind is the bad guy today causing Yuzawa Kogen and GALA Yuzawa to both be closed for the day. No word from Kagura yet (though yesterday they were saying that that all areas were now open).

Maiko appear to be open as planned but the gondola may be operating at reduced speed.

Head is spinning with so much information to check and update every morning at the moment. We are trying to put out as much information as possible. It would be an easier task if it was a case of bringing you news of tons of snow!

We will again be checking and updating the resort specific data below as necessary over the next hour or two. There may be changes. (Update: there have been!)

A good day or two of heavy snowfall would fix all this up really quickly. The forecasts over the coming week are looking promising. Please, please, please!
