Good morning from Yuzawa.

Yesterday was a beautiful day with clear blue skies into the evening.

There's a fair bit of cloud over Yuzawa this morning with a bit of blue sky to see in some places.

From tomorrow we are expecting a few days of clear skies again along with fairly mild conditions. The good news is that come Monday we should be seeing a return to colder conditions and fresh snowfall.

Today sees the Ishiuchi Maruyama resort (just to the north of Yuzawa) open for the season, and from tomorrow NASPA Ski Garden will also be opening.
