Good morning from Yuzawa.

Yesterday ended up being a rather cloudy and damp day but this morning the sun is out and we have mostly clear blue skies above us in Yuzawa. There are just a few thin clouds in some places.

Sunshine and temperatures rising to over 15C are forecast for the day today with more cloudy conditions tomorrow.

The Gigi course in the Central Area of GALA Yuzawa is hosting a competition today and tomorrow and so that course will be closed. Other areas of GALA Yuzawa are open as planned and their Sociable quad lift is operating again for the weekend.

It is the last weekend of the season at the Kandatsu Kogen resort.

This is not ski related but we thought it might be of interest.

The 'Dragondola' will be open from today until Friday 31st May --- for sightseeing. Dragondola is of course the gondola lift that connects the base area of Naeba ski resort (which is closed for skiing/boarding now) with the Tashiro Area of the Kagura ski resort (which remains open for skiing/boarding).

It is open from 9am until 3pm and a return ticket costs 2000 yen for adults and 1000 yen for children.

Worth noting that skis and snowboards are not allowed on the lift.

There is a lot of snow still remaining up there at Tashiro and so appropriate footwear is required if you plan on checking this out.
