Noon update

Clear and sunny!

Also, today is not actually a national holiday any more - apologies for that mistake in the original report (now deleted)

Original report

Good morning from Yuzawa.

Yesterday was a beauty. Earlier clouds cleared up nicely above Yuzawa and the sun was out. The mountains looked amazing.

We are starting today with mild conditions and a lot of cloud around the area. We may see some level of clearing skies again today, though probably not as much as yesterday (and that isn't happening just yet as of 9am...)

It's going to be getting up to around 6C this afternoon and a bit higher than that tomorrow, with sun expected during the day.

Not to fear... a quick drop back down in temperature and return to the snow is due Friday.

Iwappara and NASPA Ski Garden will open from tomorrow. Word from NASPA is that they will be pretty much 'fully open' from the get go.
