Good morning from Yuzawa.

And it's another good one!

Yesterday evening I cleared 8cm of snow from 'the point' and this morning there is another 35cm on there... making the total since the report yesterday as 43cm. Nice. Remember, this is down at town level and it's good to see snow walls now a feature along the side of Route 17.

Kagura are reporting 60cm of fresh snow.

Maiko Snow Resort are reporting 40cm.

Very nice.

So we can expect a good 40+cm of snow across the mountains this morning. (Compacted if groomed of course).

Snow is forecast for the day but it is just light snow at the moment and there are even some signs of possible clearer conditions...

This first part of February - and especially the last three days - really has transformed things. And as you can see below, most resorts are close closing in on 'fully open' status. I might even just take that text off the report to celebrate. Things really can change very quickly!

Like I mentioned yesterday, there's some rather warmer conditions coming from the middle of the coming week - recommend you plan accordingly if you have a choice. Conditions should be best over the next few days. Hopefully we'll see things getting colder beyond that upcoming warmer spell.

The Kagura to Tashiro connecting course is not open this morning due to avalanche risk and it looks like the top Number 5 lift at Kagura is closed too. Plenty of fresh powder to enjoy up there though.
