Good morning from Yuzawa.

Yesterday the sun was out and it was a lovely warm spring day.

This morning there is a lot of cloud around and it is going to be another warm day. Tomorrow less warm but generally cloudy. We might get some rain later on (tonight?).

GALA Yuzawa is closed today due to wind forecast. The Tashiro Area of Kagura is also closed today, with Kagura open from the Mitsumata Ropeway over to the Number 1 Romance lift.

Maiko Snow Resort yesterday announced that they will be open until this coming Sunday, 29th March. That is a week sooner than originally planned.

So just to recap, Sunday will be the last day of the season for Maiko Snow Resort, Muikamachi Hakkaisan. Yuzawa Kogen will continue on until 31st March and then Naeba and Kandatsu planning on opening until 5th April.

Beyond that, we'll be down to Kagura and GALA Yuzawa.
