Yesterday ended up being a sunny bright day but hazy once again - that's spring for you, I suppose. And while it was warmish, perhaps again not quite as warm as we thought it would be, and in the evening there was a definite chill as well.

This morning starts off mild at around 10 degrees right now and a high of 12 later on. It is cloudy but rain is due to be falling this morning and probably for the day and perhaps through tonight as well.

Strong winds - or the likelidhoold of them soon - is preventing Kagura from opening up as normal this morning. The Tashiro area will be closed today. From the Mitsumata Ropeway, just the Mitsumata runs are open early, with the chance of more opening up later though actually I would think unlikely.

Gala Yuzawa is also going to be closed today.

So there's not a whole lot of choice if you want to get out on the snow today... the choice seems to be the Mitsumata area or Kandatsu Kogen.

The weather should be calmer and sunnier from tomorrow again. And just to be clear, there's really no snow really on the forecast unfortunately as it's going to keep warm and spring-like - maybe Kagura might get a sprinkling here and there overnight, but nothing significant.
