A fine fine morning in Yuzawa. It was around -1 degrees a little earlier on but with the sun out doing it's thing and no skies temperatures are going to rise and the local forecast tells us to expect a high of around 11 or 12 degrees in Yuzawa early afternoon. So a mild spring-like day in store.

No new snow overnight but yesterday we did see some snowfall on the mountains and Kagura are saying they got around 5-10cm up there. So as is so often the case at this time of year, the pick of the bunch I would say.

Last three days of operations for a number of resorts in Yuzawa as you can see below. After that, just a handful of options with Kagura planning to be open until 22nd May.

Planned closing dates for ski resorts in the Yuzawa and Minamiuonuma region of Niigata:

Part open until 3rd April:
- Naeba
- Yuzawa Park
- Iwappara
- NASPA Ski Garden
- Ipponsugi
- Joetsu Kokusai

Part open until 10th April:
- Kandatsu Kogen
- Nakazato Snow Wood

Mostly open until 22nd May:
- Kagura (+ Mitsumata)*

All other resorts in the Yuzawa and Minamiuonuma area are now closed for the season.

Joetsu Kokusai:

* The main area of Kagura is open, accessed via Mitsumata Ropeway. The Mitsumata slopes are also open. Please keep on eye on our Naeba Now report as well for the latest from both Naeba and Kagura resort areas.



What a wonderful day it has been here, warm and clear. It's still pretty warm now at around 8 degrees but tomorrow will be cooler and cloudier. Local forecasts have rain/sleet in the daytime and perhaps snow lined up for us with a high of around 4 degrees.

Anyway I want to point you in the direction of a report from the slopes of Kagura yesterday where conditions are apparently really great still. Please check out the stoke that Tubby Beaver posted on the Forums (and here on the Naeba Now page) after his trip to Kagura on Thursday. It seems like there's a lot of season left to enjoy, a trip to the snow could be what we all need at the moment:
