Yuzawa Now!

Monday 28th May 2007, 10:16am
Weather conditions: Cloud, sun
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
The weather held out for most of the day in Yuzawa but rain moved in last night. That has since cleared up and it is now sunny, with a fair bit of cloud hanging on.

Kagura had it's last day of the season yesterday and so from today there are no ski lifts operating in the area - the snow season is officially over.

As in other areas of Japan, we didn't see the usual amount of snowfall this last season. Hopefully, next season we'll be back to what we are used to with normal (or more) amounts of regular fresh snow falling in the region. In the meantime, we have the hot summer in front of us.

We plan to update this Yuzawa Now page every so often over the coming months to let you know how things are looking in Yuzawa, and then of course as the build up to the 07/08 season begins in autumn we'll be back to daily updates.

Thanks for reading, have a great summer and stay tuned!   Read more ...

The last lift of the season at Shibutoge closed last night, meaning the end of the ski/snowboard season in Shiga Kogen.

After some rain last night the weather has improved for this morning and while there is still a fair bit of cloud it is also sunny early on and looks like it should be a generally fine day. It is still fairly cool.
