Good morning from Yuzawa.

Yesterday was a real surprise - especially as snow was falling pretty much through the day, so there will have been more cm added on the slopes. I measured an additional 4cm of snowfall since the morning. It felt very much like winter once again and while I didn't get out skiing or snowboarding myself I heard some good reports from people who did. It's always good to have a 'bonus' like that in the late stages of the season.

This morning it's all change again with clear skies over Yuzawa (some cloud to the north in Minamiuonuma) and early morning sunshine. It's a chilly start. A bit windy too, but hopefully not enough to affect lift operations. I suggest checking as opening time approaches (sorry, we need to get the report posted early this morning so don't have any further info available to share at the time of this report).

While it is a cold start to the morning, milder temps are due today and tomorrow (up to around 10C in town) with lots of sunshine forecast.

It should be a good few days... and with the prospect of some further snow later in the week too!

Muikamachi Hakkaisan closed at the end of yesterday. Interesting how that one always seems to close sooner than it needs to. They were still reporting over 2m or so of snow depth.

The Southern Area of the GALA Yuzawa resort is also now closed for the season - but the main Central and Northern Areas of GALA Yuzawa remain open as normal, and likely will be until early May.
