Good morning from Yuzawa.

And it is a lovely start to the day. Clear blue skies, sunny, warm. Full on spring conditions!

The remaining snow is now quickly melting away from town areas but there's still excellent cover on the slopes that remain open if you are still up for some skiing or snowboarding.

More fine weather is forecast for tomorrow with temperatures likely to rise above 20 degrees.

3 more weeks to go at GALA Yuzawa, Kandatsu Kogen and the Tashiro area of Kagura -- weekends and Golden Week only at Naeba. And the main Kagura area is planning to be open right through until Sunday 28th May.
