After hearing some favourable reports from up at Kagura on Sunday, unfortunately it was sad to have very mild conditions and rain yesterday which pretty much wiped out the snow on the ground around town as well as on the lower mountains - and surely hit Kagura too.

Kagura remains open this morning, but with 600m of course open (rather than the 1500m until now), and it looks like they have the Number 1 romance pair lift operating rather than the quad.

While some local forecasts are showing rain today too, right now there is lots of blue sky and sunshine above Yuzawa. It isn't as mild as yesterday but still going to be around 6C during the daytime.

Snow is on the forecast around mid week but it seems kind of difficult to read just now. We'll just have to wait and see how it all shapes up.

As much as we always want loads of early snow, a quick look below reminds us that most ski resorts in the area only plan to open in 2-3 weeks, so we have time.

---

Kagura is open and here are the details of what is open at the moment:

- Mitsumata Ropeway (8:00am-5:00pm, last one up a 3:30pm)
- Mitsumata Number 1 quad (8:00am-4:00pm)
- Mitsumata Number 2 romance pair (8:15am-4:30pm)
- Kagura Gondola (8:15am-4:00pm, last one up at 3:00pm)
- Kagura Number 1 romance (8:30am-3:30pm)

Note the times - opening a bit later on weekdays than over the weekend.

600m of the main Kagura course is available for skiing/snowboarding and they have a park area open too.

Mitsumata is available just as a 'connecting course' back down to the top of the Mitsumata Ropeway.
