Well, Golden Week is nearly over now and it has been quite busy. Not as busy as normal for a Golden Week I would say, but still a fair few people. A pity really, because this season there still is a lot of snow up at the resorts and complete cover.

Last year we didn't have as much snow and we were also dealing with some really hot temperatures.... down in Yuzawa town it rose to over 30 degrees during Golden Week!

Today it is not going to get much over about 17 degrees, and less than that up at Kagura of course. The resort was even reporting a temperature of just +2 up there early this morning. So a big contrast to last year. It's a fine morning with the sun out and some wispy cloud amongst the blue sky.

Anyway, tomorrow is not a national holiday and I think the resort plan to have less lifts moving, though they should be covering the same course areas. Then after that, it's the weekend again!
