Good morning from Yuzawa.

Quite strong winds indeed yesterday.

And as expected, rain too, which is forecast for pretty much most of the day today. It looks like there is limited visibility on the mountains this morning. Not the nicest of conditions!

Beyond today we should be enjoying clearer skies.

There is more news to report this morning (and apologies for missing this yesterday). Today is going to be the last day of the season for the Kandatsu Kogen resort. They were of course originally planning on remaining open for another week, but with the snow situation that just is not possible.

So, today the ski resorts that are at least part open are Kandatsu Kogen, GALA Yuzawa, Kagura and Naeba.

At the time of the report, GALA seem to be saying that they will be open but they have not put up lift operations info. Might be worth checking with them for the latest if you plan on being up there.

----

From tomorrow, just GALA Yuzawa and Kagura will remain open - with Naeba still planning to be open for weekends and Golden Week.

All of this is subject to change of course - I don't suppose it would be too much of a surprise if there were further adjustments...

---

Yuzawa Now reports will continue to be posted daily until 6th May
