Good morning from Yuzawa.

It's another clear and light blue sky hazy kind of start to the day here. The sun is out, the pollen is flying, and after temperatures reaching as high as 19 degrees in the valley yesterday... the snow is melting pretty quickly.

We actually got some rain last night though I don't think it lasted too long. It was coming down quite hard at one point though.

So anyway, it's clear again this morning and it may not get quite as warm today. Warmer again tomorrow. And sunshine forecast for today, tomorrow and Saturday.

Today is the last day of the season for the NASPA Ski Garden resort.

Maiko Snow Resort have also announced that they will not be able to open on 9th/10th April as originally planned, so this coming Sunday (3rd April) will be the last day of their season.

I'm not quite sure how the town level Yuzawa Park is able to remain open until now, but apparently they are. Official snow depth over there is 10cm but I suspect that it's 10cm less than that in most areas! Gambatte-imasu ne.

Resort official snow depths (Thursday 31st March 2016) and any specific news at time of writing:

Lower slopes around town now have little or no snow on them, though higher areas still enjoy good snow cover.
Best to head high.
Some of the below official snow depths seem a little... optimistic... with some surrounding areas at lower resorts closer to 0cm.
