Update at 3pm:

Kandatsu Kogen have announced that tomorrow (Tuesday 5th April) will be their last day of the season.

Original morning report:

Good morning from Yuzawa.

It's a wet and cloudy morning here and after yesterday when temperatures shot up to above 20 degrees during the day, it is going to be a much cooler day today with temperatures actually dropping this morning after a warm overnight. Hopefully the rain won't last too long and we'll end up with a just cloudy afternoon.

Sun and slightly warmer (but not as warm as yesterday) conditions are forecast for tomorrow.

From today we are left with just three resorts open in Yuzawa - Kandatsu Kogen, GALA Yuzawa and Kagura. Their planned closing dates are mentioned below - do keep in mind though that they might not be able to manage to remain open as per the original plans with the lower snow bases and warm conditions. We shall see, and we'll update the report each day with any news.

Tomorrow's Yuzawa Now report may appear late in the day due to some more background technical maintenance work being done on the server - apologies in advance.
