Good morning from Yuzawa.

It was definitely not as warm yesterday and there was a lot of cloud around.

This morning we are starting the day with clearer skies and it should be a sunny day - and warmer again with temperatures rising above 20 degrees in town.

It doesn't actually seem windy right at the moment down in town, but unfortunately wind does look like it might well be an issue today. The GALA Yuzawa resort have already announced that they will not be open for the day due to the forecast wind conditions. This report is going up early and I don't have any other information from other resorts at this time, but it might be worth checking if you plan to be out today.

Rain due by tonight and into tomorrow. For now the forecast seems to show rain at times tomorrow, not all the way through... so we may dodge too much of it. Or maybe not. I will of course update you tomorrow morning.

Last chance to ski at a number of ski resorts this weekend. Come Monday, we'll be down to Kandatsu Kogen, GALA Yuzawa and Kagura (with Naeba also open only on weekends). More details below.
