Golden Week is now officially over and what a golden week it was -- temperatures soared and we had fine fine weather right the way through. It got borderline hot even up on the mountains - further down in Yuzawa town, a temperature of close to 30 degrees was recorded yesterday.

Today is another warm and sunny one and it will be getting very warm once again, though things look set to cool down from tomorrow and into next week as well.

Only the main Kagura area, via Mitsumata Ropeway, now remains open and they plan to be open until 30th May. As the snow melts expect the Mitsumata area to become narrower and then eventually only used as a connecting course. If the snow melts away from Mitsumata altogether they will likely eventually use a shuttle bus to get people to the Kagura Gondola. For the moment though, Mitsumata remains open.

Lifts that remain operating at Mitsumata/Kagura are as follows:

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

Regular updates from the Yuzawa area until the end of the season can be found on the main Yuzawa Now page.

Official Snow Depths:


The main Kagura area, via Mitsumata Ropeway, plans to be open through until Sunday 30th May.
