Good morning from Yuzawa.

Well how about this then!?

This morning Maiko Snow Resort are reporting 10-20cm of fresh snow on their slopes. Kagura are reporting 15cm. We have just measured between 5-9cm in different areas around town level, with our trusted spot showing 7cm.

That is a very nice late March surprise.

It is just snowing very lightly right now and should be easing off sometime this morning. Quite cold and hanging around zero for now, won't warm up much.

Tomorrow - back to sunshine and milder conditions with a high of around 10C in the afternoon.

Today is the last day of the season for the Muikamachi Hakkaisan resort.

Two small ski hills to the north of Yuzawa (Hakkai Sanroku and Itsukamachi) have already closed.

The planned closing dates for all of the ski resorts in the Yuzawa and Minamiuonuma region have been updated below. Hopefully they will all be able to remain open as originally planned... the snow today will help!
