Good morning from Yuzawa.

This morning is probably how we would have liked yesterday to have been weather wise - cloud with some blue sky, and not too much wind. Today and tomorrow should be a mix of cloud and blue sky with temperatures rising above 15C in town.

Anyway, a number of ski areas in the area are now closed for the season.

There's a few changes in operations from today at some of the ski areas that remain open; those points noted in the list below.

-----

A lot of snow has melted away over the last week or so. But you can still see that there's still a covering of snow in the fields of the Minamiuonuma valley (just to the north of Yuzawa) - see the webcam image from Ishiuchi Maruyama below. There's still about 1+m in places, and some farmers are now busy breaking up the snow to try and encourage the melt.

-----

If you haven't already seen it, I'd like to bring to your attention the Myoko Now report from yesterday. I found myself agreeing with most of what was (very nicely) written in that report as it applies to this region as well.

A Yuzawa Now season round up will appear later in the season.
