Wow today sure was warm. The thermometer almost reached 20 degrees earlier this afternoon and it was a big contract to the cold snowy weather we had just last week. That was great while it lasted but that snow has pretty much all gone now and the last few days has seen the snow noticeably retreat up the mountainsides and more patches appearing on the lower slopes in particular. Those official snow depths posted by the resorts are looking more and more 'optimistic' now - for example even though Nunoba is only reporting 50cm of snow, there are significant patches of ground there and limited areas where you can ski. I can't see places like that being able to open much longer.

Some places are being a bit coy regarding closing dates this season. NASPA and Iwappara are both going to try and remain open until Sunday 5th April, while Gala Yuzawa, Naeba and Kagura have not made any announcements of any change in their plans.... whether they can actually stretch out the season until May remains to be seen.

We'll be keeping an eye on that info and letting you know.

Tomorrow is a national holiday, but unfortunately it is looking like it will be raining in the morning (perhaps snow higher up if temps drop enough) and certainly not as warm as today.
