Yesterday saw mixed weather - heavy rain and strong winds at times in the middle of the day and then finer weather later on. This morning it started off with a complete cover of cloud, but right now the sun is out and after the chilly start it is warming up and should reach around 17 degrees. (This morning it was just 1 degree at Kagura).

Two more weekends left up at Kagura ski resort. It looks like tomorrow will just be cloudy and a chance of rain on Sunday, so perhaps tomorrow would be the pick over the weekend.

The official snow depth is 150cm still, but I would take that with a pinch of salt. Parts of the courses at Kagura are getting a bit patchy (and the snow almost gone in surrounding areas), with the lower part of the Gondola course now just a thin strip. Still good cover on the main course though, still fun to be had!

This last week has certainly been cooler than we expect for mid-May and temperatures have dropped since the warm/hot period before Golden Week. How long will that last I wonder?
