It was lovely weather yesterday morning, with it almost feeling borderline 'hot' at times rising to a fair bit beyond 20 degrees.

Things got more cloudy during the afternoon and also cooled down a bit.

Early this morning it's bright but it looks very hazy out there as well as there being quite a bit of cloud around. It's forecast to be a fine day though with the sun shining. It shouldn't be warming up as much as yesterday today.

As mentioned yesterday, today is the last day of the season for GALA Yuzawa resort which means that from tomorrow just the Kagura resort will remain open in the region. Both the Mitsumata and Tashiro Ropeways remain operating, more details below.

And in Kagura news, they have announced that from today the Panorama Course and the lower part of the Technical Course are no longer open. They also mention the chance of other changes ahead...

LATE SEASON REPORTING
The individual Now reports will continue in each area until the season in that place closes - some will continue daily until the end, some will become less than daily now that we are in April.

Once the season has finished everywhere, we will be adding a general season wrap up to each of the reports, where we will also answer questions and comments that we regularly get sent. Some do keep on coming back! The end of season message will be up at the end of Golden Week in early May.

Thank you for reading.
