Good morning from Yuzawa.

It might well be the end of April and the beginning of Golden Week, but it sure doesn't feel like it this morning!

Kagura are reporting 3-5cm of snow on the main slopes with snow also falling at Tashiro and the Mitsumata areas. No snow on the base Mitsumata car park though where it's wet and raining (that is according to the resort itself as of 8am). GALA Yuzawa were also reporting snow early morning but the webcam currently looks more like rain is falling at their course base, perhaps snow higher up.

It is wet and rainy down here in town and we are expecting rain through the day. Not a very appealing start to Golden Week, though some dusting of fresh snow high up does of course sound good.

It is cold too back down to around 5C in town.

Tomorrow should be clearer with sun forecast and temperatures rising back into low teens.

---

An event is being held on the Gigi course in the Central Area of GALA Yuzawa so there are some restrictions on that course today but other than that both GALA Yuzawa and Kagura are opening as planned.

Photos today are from GALA Yuzawa and Route 17 / Yuzawa IC exit.
