Good morning from Yuzawa.

It is a beautiful morning. The sun is out and we have blue skies all around, with a good looking sea of low cloud covering parts of the Minamiuonuma valley early on. Stunning. It will certainly be a great morning to be out and up there on the Kagura slopes... (wish I could be there myself!)

Fairly chilly start to the morning, but as expected it will be warming up somewhat today (high of around 8C?) and more so tomorrow when the temperature down in town may well hit low double digits. From Thursday things are expected to start getting colder again and perhaps some snow, particularly at higher elevations.

We are now approaching the planned opening dates of some more ski resorts in the region... first up, Maiko Snow Resort which hopes to open from Friday. And then there are a bunch of ski resorts that have the coming Saturday as their planned opening dates - including GALA Yuzawa and the Tashiro Area of Kagura. All the planned opening dates are noted below of course.

With warmer conditions expected over the next few days and not a huge amount of snow forecast before the weekend, those openings are definitely a rather large question mark - perhaps except Tashiro and GALA Yuzawa which are higher up.

We will of course keep you posted every morning with the latest news.
