Good morning from Yuzawa.

The last of the snow in my garden melted away yesterday in the warm conditions (it lasted a month longer than last season). A lovely warm day - up to almost 18C! - and today is starting off in a similar fashion. It is going to be warm again, though more cloud is expected later on and some rain overnight and into tomorrow.. tomorrow should be not quite as warm.

GALA Yuzawa is going to be closed for the day today due to strong southerly winds forecast. It looks like other resorts that plan to be open should be opening as normal.

Remember, the Naeba and Maiko Snow Resort ski resorts will be re-opening again for the coming weekend.
