Hello and good morning from Yuzawa.

Early morning here it is cloudy. We are forecast a high of just over 10C here in town later this afternoon, and unfortunately rain is seeming likely, especially later on this evening. There could be some snow in higher elevations, but I wouldn't expect much even if it does. Would be good if rain could be avoided though.

A similar kind of pattern looks likely for tomorrow with a good chance of snow still around Monday. Whether we'll get some cm down in town remains to be seen; if the forecasts are right a much higher chance of snow on the mountainsides.

Tomorrow will be the last day of the winter season for the Naeba, Yuzawa Park and Yuzawa Kogen resorts in Yuzawa town and Chateau Shiozawa and Muica Snow Resort in neighbouring Minamiuonuma city.

NASPA Ski Garden will also open on Monday - no doubt to allow staying guests in their adjoining NASPA hotel to have their last ski after a big buffet breakfast! (Wouldn't mind one of them myself!)

Maiko Snow Resort plans to be closed from Monday to Friday and will then open up again for one last weekend on the 6th and 7th of April.
