This morning we have some wispy white cloud hanging on in places but generally more fine, sunny weather with a light blue sky. It is already around 15 degrees in Yuzawa with a high of around 17 around lunchtime forecast.

I was just taking a look back at how the weather was last year at this time and surprised to see that temperatures last Golden Week were approaching 30 degrees in Yuzawa. It's fairly warm but certainly nothing like that this year! More snow left too and the Mitsumata area of Kagura is still going strong.

It's the last national holiday of Golden Week today, though we can perhaps expect Kagura to be a bit busier than a normal Friday tomorrow as some people take an extra day off for a long holiday.

As mentioned below Kandatsu is still part open, though the snow and course areas open there now are quite limited - Kagura by far offers the most area open.


Kandatsu Kogen plans to be open until 8th May.
Kagura plans to be open until 29th May.
