A beautiful and eventually warm day in Yuzawa and Minamiouonuma yesterday. Clear blue skies were what we got once the early clouds moved on and it really felt like a spring day. This morning has started off with sort of clear skies but a very overcast and hazy kind of feel, and it's warm - already about 9 degrees. Tomorrow will probably be warmer still. It's feeling like spring time now all of a sudden.

Yesterday was the last day of the season for a fair few ski resorts in the region. It feels somewhat strange with resorts closing when there is so much snow still around, even down at town level. Some places where there is untouched snow still have 1-2m of snow.

What remains open daily now is Kagura, Kandatsu Kogen and Gala Yuzawa. Ludens Yuzawa plan to open next weekend and Naeba plan to open for the next two weekends, but will be closed weekdays.

As mentioned on the Naeba Now report this morning, this Yuzawa Now report page will be covering the daily updates for Kagura now that Naeba is officially closed. The Naeba Now report page will get a weekly update before each weekend. Yuzawa Now will continue on being updated daily right through until the last lifts stop moving up at Kagura, so there's a fair while to go yet.
