UPDATE

Quite strong winds higher up this morning.
GALA Yuzawa resort is closed today due to the wind but it looks like all other resorts are opening as planned.

ORIGINAL REPORT

Good morning from Yuzawa.

After a mild overnight it's a lovely spring morning here with clear blue skies and lots of birdsong early on!

Yesterday some cloud turned up but it remained a fine, sunny day.

Hearing various accounts from people out at different resorts yesterday ranging from 'snow keeping pretty decent high up' to 'late April conditions' from other people.

There's some ground starting to show through in some lower areas and a few courses here and there closed off - mostly steeper areas that need more snow to get proper cover.

But there was definitely snow melt going on yesterday and more of the same is expected today. Temperatures rose to around 13C in Yuzawa during the day yesterday and today a high of 15C is forecast with a light (to maybe moderate at times) southerly wind.

One good thing that I'm happy to report is that we seem to be avoiding the rain that was originally on the forecast. Let's hope it stays that way.

More good news is that tomorrow should be getting cooler and come mid-week it might enjoy some late-winter like cold and even some fresh snow on the ground! So there is hope even if it may just feel too warm this weekend.

Have a good spring Sunday.
