Hello from Yuzawa.

It was a fine day yesterday. Then some heavy rain last night, and it looks like a bit of snowfall up at higher elevations.

Kagura are reporting 10cm of fresh snowfall and Maiko Snow Resort are reporting 3cm.

By the way. I have mentioned this before in the reports, but the reason that it is always those two ski resorts that I mention with fresh snowfall numbers is because they actually report those numbers each day. I would happily mention other ski resorts if they specifically mentioned such numbers. (We wish they would!)

The clouds have for the most part cleared though and it is a fine morning. Today will be mild. Tomorrow will be warmer than today (with temperatures around mid-teens in town).

As another report says this morning... spring time.

Yuzawa Nakazato have announced that today will be the last day of the winter season for them.

They will have two lifts operating today and closed from tomorrow.
