After the windy and rather dull weather of yesterday, this morning we woke up to blue skies and fine sunny weather. It was fairly cold last night and early this morning but it will warm up to around 9 degrees early this afternoon. A fine day.

Looking at the forecast, maybe another good start to tomorrow with it clouding over and maybe rain later on which might turn into snow overnight. There is also a chance of snow the following few days, so fingers crossed for that.

As for the snow -- well, the last week or so has seen the snow rapidly melt away from lower areas. Lower runs on resorts around Yuzawa town are now looking quite bare, and the small Nunoba resort near the center of town has now closed for the season. I would expect others to follow very soon. Places that have runs higher up - Iwappara, Gala Yuzawa, Kandatsu and of course Kagura and Naeba are still doing ok as there is still cover and of course the latter two will be trying to stay open for a fair bit longer.

Last night was the first night this year that there were no nighta lights on in Minamiuonuma, with Ishiuchi and Joetsu Kokusai's last nighta on Sunday night. The bottom half of Ishiuchi and Joetsu Kokusai are now looking very bare indeed - and actually not skiable, with ski lifts taking people up to the higher areas that are still open. The top of Ishiuchi still looks like it has a fair bit of snow and decent cover. There is now almost no snow on the lower part of Maiko, though the Gondola is still taking people up the mountain and the courses over in the top bowl are still open. Not many people up there when I took a quick look yesterday, so if you are in for a bit of last spring skiing up there....

Nighta tonight is open at the following resorts in Yuzawa:
