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.
