Good morning from Yuzawa.

It's a lovely clear morning here - less hazy than yesterday - and the sun is out again. Temperatures just under 10 degrees at the moment and a due to warm up to around 16 degrees in town.

Some forecasts say we'll get some rain later on tomorrow, others that the rain will start Monday.

There's another closing date change to report. Kandatsu Kogen was originally hoping to be able to be open until 24th April, but it's not that much of a surprise to hear that they have had to bring that forward - they are now saying that they'll be able to be part open until 10th April at the latest.

Like I have commented before, it will be interesting to see how long GALA Yuzawa and Kagura can keep going. They are higher up and so there's more snow there still - but there is less of a base than usual and it is of course warm. Anyway, will let you in on any news as we have it.

Resort official snow depths (Saturday 2nd April 2016):

Lower slopes around town now have no (or very little) snow on them. Higher areas still enjoy good snow cover - best to head high.
(I've taken out some of the official snow depth numbers because frankly some are just meaningless... and frankly a bit silly!)
