Good morning from Yuzawa.

Yesterday was a beauty of a day.

And this morning... it has started snowing again which is great to see.

Maiko Snow Resort were reporting 5cm early on and Kagura have reported 1cm. But it's coming down nicely now and as of 8:30am I have just measured 6cm (and counting). There will be more to report tomorrow and the snow clouds are due through the day today and tomorrow.

Ski resorts are all getting into 'mostly open' or 'almost fully open' territory now.

The downhill Falcon course at GALA should be available from later on today.

The individual ski resort information below has been updated with the latest that we can find as of 8:30am.

While it is snowing we need as much as possible.

It has been a very good few days, but in the big picture we are still playing catch-up. (And what looks like some rather warm conditions are upcoming later in the coming week).

Come on snow!
