It is a fine but hazy and warm morning here in Yuzawa with the temperature at 9am around 17 degrees. It's forecast to warm up to around 22C (so given the way things have been throughout this season expect it to be a bit warmer than that!)

Rain is expected later on today though and through tomorrow as well, perhaps heavy at times. It might stay wet into Friday as well - the first day of Golden Week period.

Kagura may even be lucky enough to get some fresh snow as well. Hard to imagine with the warmth of the moment but that's what the forecasts say.

Talking of Kagura...

Kagura has announced that the Dynamic Course at Tashiro and the Technical Course at the main Kagura area are now closed for the season due to the retreating snow. They are also closing the Giant Course just for today so that they can move around snow in an effort to keep it open longer, and also the Gondola Course this morning but they plan on opening that on again by noon today.

Kagura are still stating that they plan to be open until 29th May. Is over one more month really possible?! Personally I'd not think that much beyond the end of Golden Week would be possible if I were planning on getting in a last slide on the snow... you know, just in case...!

This comment is not specific to any particular resort or even to resorts in this area, but more than a few resorts this season have suddenly cut short the season without much of an advanced warning. I suppose mentioning it too early might put some people off, though I would personally have thought that it might just encourage some people to get out for that last slide.

Upcoming Golden Week holidays:

* Friday 29th April - Sunday 1st May (3 day long weekend)
* Tuesday 3rd May - Thursday 5th May (3 day holiday mid-week)
* Saturday 7th May - Sunday 8th May (normal weekend)

The Tashiro Ropeway and area plans to be part open until 8th May.
The Kagura area via Mitsumata Ropeway plans to be part open until 29th May.
