It is spring already in Yuzawa and we have had some pretty warm weather of late. Much like the rest of Japan, the cherry blossoms have made a really early appearance. This does give us the chance to get some photos of cherry blossom with snow around!
The ski season is still going, though last weekend (April 3 & 4) was the final one for many of the lower resorts. There is a deep base this year so there are several resorts still operating. Here are a few closing dates if you are looking to come up to the mountains for some spring skiing – think soft spring snow, t-shirts and lounging on the deck after a long lunch!
Naeba – until April 13th
Kandatsu Kogen – until April 18th
Tashiro – until May 5th
GALA Yuzawa – until May 5th
Kagura – until May 23rd
All these are planned closing dates so may vary depending on conditions. We still have plenty of instructors in Yuzawa if you are looking for ski or snowboard lessons.
