Good morning from Yuzawa.

The sun is out from early on this morning - clear skies, if a little hazy feeling somehow. It's already closing in on 10 degrees as we approach 9am with temperatures today expected to rise to around 15C later on so it's going to be pretty warm. Any remaining snow from town and lower areas is now fast disappearing and the snow line moving up the mountain sides.

Tomorrow will likely start off sunny again but there's some rain on the forecast for later in the day. Thursday through Saturday is once again probably going to be sunny and warm.

Resort official snow depths (Tuesday 29th March 2016) and any specific news at time of writing:

There are now patches of ground on view showing on lower slopes around town - though covered up temporarily yesterday with fresh snow! Some more than others. The snow situation means that some courses/areas at resorts are now closed. If you are planning on visiting, I recommended that you check with the individual resorts for their up-to-date details. You can find their websites from the links below. Note that snow cover is not a problem higher up so there's still a lot of skiing and boarding left.
