Good morning from Yuzawa.

There were a few short periods of sun and blue sky during the day yesterday but it generally remained cloudy with even a few spots of rain at times - and snow higher up. (It's also worth pointing out that yesterday Kagura were reporting 5cm on their staff message board, rather than the 2cm that they were reporting on their main homepage... also they seem to be reporting another 2cm this morning).

It was keeping relatively cold with wind probably contributing to that.

This morning there are blue skies above Yuzawa; more cloud hanging just to the north over Minamiuonuma. And the forecast appears to be a mix of cloud and fine, with the chance of some spots of rain (but hopefully not).

Early on, it's a mostly fine start to the day.

And in a few ways today is the start of the last stretch of the season. Iwappara, Maiko, Ishiuchi and Joetsu Kokusai all managed to stay open through yesterday. I was up at Maiko for a few hours and it was fun. While the snow has disappeared from much of the lower half, there was still good snow cover up at the top Okusoeji area. And not many people around for their last day of the season.

From today, we are left with Kandatsu Kogen, GALA Yuzawa and Kagura open every day and Naeba planning to re-open for weekends and Golden Week.

---

* Kandatsu Kogen, GALA Yuzawa and Kagura remain open every day.
* Naeba is closed today but open on weekends and over Golden Week.
* Further details below.
