Morning everyone from Yuzawa.

Yesterday was a rather dull day - and actually fairly cold too, especially if you were sliding down the slopes at some speed. A few spots of rain again later in the day but as far as I saw not much at all and none at all in places.

Once again the high elevation Kagura are reporting 1cm of fresh snow.

This morning the sun is out and there's lots of blue skies above. There's a few clouds up there; and a bit of low cloud still hanging over the Minamiuonuma valley (see image below) just to the north of Yuzawa, but they will very probably be gone soon.

It's going to be a very fine day by the looks and a fitting end to the season for some ski resorts...

Today is the last day for a handful of ski resorts, all of which still have excellent cover and (of course, spring) conditions.

Please note that Maiko Snow Resort will be closed from tomorrow until Friday but the Gondola side will re-open again for next weekend.
