It has been a rainy few days in this region unfortunately and strong winds have also been messing about with lift operations as well, as covered on the Yuzawa Now reporting page.

This morning the rain continues - cloudy, rainy and definitely considerably cooler than it was last weekend! But both Naeba and Kagura are open as planned.

The No2 Gondola and Takenokodaira pair lift are operating at Naeba with just that run up there open.

There's much more open at Kagura. Lifts that are scheduled to be operating today until Sunday at Kagura are as follows:

Mitsumata Ropeway
Mitsumata No1 quad
Mitsumata No2 quad
Mitsumata No2 pair
Mitsumata No3 pair
Kagura Gondola
Kagura No1 quad
Kagura No4 pair
Kagura No5 pair
Tashiro Ropeway
Tashiro No1 pair
Tashiro No2 pair
Tashiro No4 pair
Tashiro No1 quad
Tashiro No6 pair
Tashiro No8 pair

Sunday is the last day of the season for the Tashiro Ropeway and Tashiro area of Kagura and so from Monday we will be left with just the Kagura and Mitsumata areas open. From Monday, here's what they plan to have open at Kagura:

Mitsumata Ropeway
Mitsumata No1 quad
Mitsumata No3 pair
Kagura Gondola
Kagura No1 quad

Please note that the top No5 pair lift at Kagura won't be open after this weekend.
