Good morning from Yuzawa.

A fine and warm day yesterday and we are expecting another one of them today; with temperatures due to rise beyond 20C. (Yesterday afternoon when I drove past the temperature read out panel in Yuzawa it said 20C). There's some thin high cloud around this morning so more of an overcast look than yesterday.

More of the same due tomorrow.

Snow cover is still generally excellent at the open ski resorts. Even at the lower Kandatsu Kogen resort some bare patches are just now starting to show in places on the main lower course.

I think we can call that impressive for the middle of April, especially when you consider the snowfall patterns in the second half of this season.

---

We are now in the last week of the ski season for the Kandatsu Kogen resort which is open until Sunday 21st April. Beyond that GALA Yuzawa and all of Kagura will be open until Monday 6th May, and then from the 7th May just the main Kagura area of that resort will remain open until their planned closing date of Sunday 26th May.
