Good morning from Yuzawa.

The snow yesterday morning didn't last long and there's no fresh snow to report this morning.

The sun is out this morning, though it's a kind of hazy-overcast-y kind of fine featuring thin cloud rather than deep blue clear skies. See the images below to get an idea!

The forecast for tomorrow is fine weather again and a rise in temperatures further than we should see today (perhaps closing in on double digit numbers).

But don't worry, it still seems that we are going to get more snow mid-week. Just how much, we'll have to wait and see.

In the meantime it should be a fun few days of spring-like conditions.

---

If you suffer from hay fever, might be a good idea to cover your face up - some locals beginning to get the sneezes and itchy eyes. It always feels strange when there is still so much snow around!

---

Just in case you have not noticed yet, we have added 'planned closing dates' for resorts in the region on the report below. We'll be checking and updating that a few times a week.

It hard to believe that Muikamachi Hakkaisan will only be open for another two weeks - that resort always seems to close way too early! - but then we can feel better by remembering that Kagura plans to be open until late May!
