The forecast for today was clear bright sunny skies... but it certainly didn't start that way.
Not in Yuzawa anyway, with a real grey and thin cloud look to proceedings.
But we were ready to go for our half day out and Yuzawa Kogen was the destination so off we went.

Yuzawa Kogen is right in the centre of Yuzawa Town, accessed by the Yuzawa Kogen Ropeway.

We (myself and muika-burazza-zu... say hi....)

...were on the first Ropeway up and got to ski some courdroy on the first run before it got chopped up.

When we left a few hours later there was still a fair bit of untouched snow in the ungroomed areas, which were fun.

Yuzawa Kogen is only a small place really, not much too it.

But it gives you probably the best views of Yuzawa town and surroundings, as seen here.

So I would definitely recommend it for a fine day. If you like that sort of thing of course.

By the time we left the cloud had mostly left us and things were getting bluer. An hour after we left and it would have been perfect blue I think, but we had to leave with other things to do later today.

OK time for some trees and snow scenery.

Starting with my favourite

Looking over to the South Area of the Gala Yuzawa resort - a ropeway connects Yuzawa Kogen with this area.

What the heck? Muika San-kyodai? :lol:

Is that the Gala Yuzawa shinkansen station seen behind the ropeway?

Lovely pics again.

Metabo, I know the answer to that --- it's the main Echigo Yuzawa Station that you can see there, and the central area of Yuzawa town.

Gala is off to the left.

Thanks folks.

It is a beautiful view from up there.

Yuzawa Kogen is only small really. The views are the thing.

Hope the weather co-operates when you go Sciclone.

Oh and had a lot of fun on the down hill course as well - the one going back down to base from Yuzawa Kogen. Don't take the Ropeway down, ski it.
