Good morning.

A bit of a grey early morning but the sun is out now and it is going to be a fine spring day with temperatures later on rising to around 25 degrees here in town. Borderline hot, that! It's hazy rather than lovely blue skies. More of the same expected tomorrow.

Tomorrow until Thursday are national holidays in Japan and so expect Kagura to be pretty busy.

More Kagura news this morning:

Today is the last day of the season for the Tashiro <> Kagura connecting course, and the Alyeska course at Tashiro is also now closed.

A warm southerly wind is expected tomorrow and the resort are warning that the Tashiro area may well have to completely close earlier than next Sunday, which is the planned closing date.

This is just local talk and rumour, but word seems to be that people think Kagura will be closing due to the lack of snow a few weeks earlier than planned (* planned is the 29th). Remember that is just rumour/guesswork from locals, but unfortunately resorts themselves often leave it late to announce these kinds of things. I'm just thinking about people who might be planning on skiing near the end of the month...

I'm not keeping the official snow depth numbers in the report anymore because honestly they are close to meaningless now (100cm today at Tashiro?!) and the resort does not seem to be publishing it up front as a headline either
