An early report this morning. It's mild early on and just cloudy. If it did snow last night I can't see any evidence of that this morning, though there may well have been some snow higher up -- not in town though.

It is currently around +2 degrees and will likely rise to perhaps 5 or 6 during the day. Right now the forecast is for cloud with perhaps some sleet and even snow later on tonight (not much) before more of that fine, sunny weather tomorrow. There is only a slight mild breeze and so it should be operations as normal for the resorts in town.

Even with the snow of the other morning, there's a real feel of spring in the air. Snow on the lower slopes on some resorts in the town area is looking rather thin on the ground unfortunately and there are questions now about how long resorts will be able to stay open this season. I was hearing yesterday that some of the resorts in town might only get another couple of weeks or so out of the season. It remains to be seen of course, though places like Kagura, Naeba, GALA Yuzawa are still optimistic that it can stay open a fair while longer. We'll bring you more concrete news on that issue soon.

Let's hope those temperatures keep on the low side and we can get more snowfall to top things up. (The next snow is looking likely to be Friday).

Nighta tonight is at the following resorts in Yuzawa:
Naeba
Iwappara

In Minamiuonuma just to the north, nighta at:
Ishiuchi Maruyama
Centleisure Maiko
Joetsu Kokusai
