We enjoyed the sun for lots of the day yesterday, a bit of a wind in the afternoon and cloudier conditions later on with then rain during the night. Quite heavy at times too.

It is not raining this morning but cloud remains over the area and it is very noticeably not as warm as it has been over the last week or so. We are forecast to get to see the sun again today but it doesn't look like it will get as hot with the local forecast predicting a high of about 20 degrees.

Tomorrow it's sun all the way and more like mid-20s so that should be good weather for the last day of the season at GALA Yuzawa, Naeba and Tashiro areas. Naeba were hoping to be able to keep the Daishamen course open, but have had to close it due to the lack of snow up there. Snow melt has been fast over the last week or so...

From Thursday onwards only Kagura (via Mitsumata Ropeway) will remain open and they plan to continue on until the end of May.

We'll be posting our last daily update of the season tomorrow, and then reports at least once a week until Kagura closes.
