Good morning from Yuzawa.

The big news this morning is that the GALA Yuzawa resort has announced that they will be open until Sunday 22nd April - rather than the initially planned 6th May. As you might expect, the reason being given is that since March we have had little fresh snow and warmer conditions are affecting snow conditions. So just over one week left at GALA and from Monday 23rd April we will be down to only the Kagura resort being open. It will be interesting to see if Kagura can open as long as initially planned.

Anyway, on to the weather and as I write that I can hear some wind making some howling sounds. At the time of writing that does not seem to be an issue with the resorts opening...

It is a mostly cloudy start to the day and it definitely feels colder than it has been. Tomorrow should be warmer and we might get to see more sunshine, but rain later on and perhaps into Sunday.

Naeba plans to re-open for the weekend.

---

* Kandatsu Kogen, GALA Yuzawa and Kagura remain open every day.
* Naeba is will re-open on weekends and over Golden Week.
* Further details below.
* Yuzawa Now reports will continue to be posted daily until 6th May.
