Morning from Yuzawa.

Yesterday it remained sunny for lots of the day; more cloud appearing in the afternoon and it was actually quite chilly higher up.

This morning there's some cloud around against a backdrop of light blue skies, and the sun is out. As we approach 9am it's 4 degrees and a high of around 10 degrees is expected later this afternoon... and perhaps a few spots of rain.

Today is the last day of the season for a number of resorts in the area including Ishiuchi Maruyama and Yuzawa Nakazato. NASPA Ski Garden is going to try to continue on for another week with just one lift and one course remaining open.

Details as we have them included below and we'll check and update that every day from now on.

I was looking at some photos from last season. On this day last year, there was still close to an incredible 2 metres of snow piled up in my back garden. It's bone dry today, and there hasn't been any trace of snow there for over a week. It just goes to show the huge contrast between last season - when some resorts were actually extending their seasons - and this season.

Hopefully next season we'll get back to like last year; even an 'average' season will be good. Average for this region still means metres of snow piled up at the side of roads in town.

Kagura resort plans to be open through until late May... just how long they can continue with the snow this season will be interesting to see.

Resort official snow depths (Sunday 27th March 2016) and any specific news at time of writing:

There are now patches of ground on view showing on lower slopes around town - though covered up temporarily yesterday with fresh snow! Some more than others. The snow situation means that some courses/areas at resorts are now closed. If you are planning on visiting, I recommended that you check with the individual resorts for their up-to-date details. You can find their websites from the links below. Note that snow cover is not a problem higher up so there's still a lot of skiing and boarding left.
