Lots of clear blue skies all day yesterday and with not much of a wind it got to feel fairly mild out on the slopes though in fact it did keep quite cold. Really nice conditions out there as well after the snowfall early in the week.

After a clear night and temperatures dropping down to only around -2, this morning we have been greeted by some new snowfall around town. Up to 5cm or so in places I'd say and (wet) snow falling still at the moment.

A high of around +2 is forecast for the day so it's not feeling particularly cold this morning even with the snow falling. We can expect warmer though tomorrow and in particular Saturday - clearer skies and perhaps the sun forecast for tomorrow but on Saturday it is looking likely that we'll be seeing rain fall with a high of around +6 in town. Possibly into Sunday too. Higher places might escape that and probably the best bet if you are around for the weekend.

Looks like we might see snow again on Monday though along with another dip in temperature.

Just a bit of new to report from Minamiuonuma, with the planned resort closing dates for the skijo in this area. It's hard to believe that some resorts around the area only have a few more weeks left open. Subject to change I suppose, but it seems that the large amounts of snow that we still have in the area isn't affecting plans.

Anyway, here they are:

Open until Sunday 25th March:
Muikamachi Hakkai-san
Muikamachi Ski Resort
Mt Granview

Open until Monday 26th March:
Hakkaisanroku

Open until Wednesday 28th March:
Itsukamachi

Open until Thursday 29th March:
Ishiuchi Hanaoka

Open until Friday 30th March:
Chateau Shiozawa

Open until Sunday 1st April:
Centleisure Maiko Snow Resort

Open until Sunday 8th April:
Ishiuchi Hanaoka
Joetsu Kokusai

We'll post the dates for Yuzawa resorts soon as well.
