Good morning from Yuzawa.

Last night Yuzawa were saying they were hoping for 20cm looking at the forecast, and they seem to be reporting 10cm. The Kagura quad is back working again, as is the 1500m long course.

The mountains are looking white again and in town areas there is a thin layer of snow in places. I think I can just about justify adding 1cm to the report this morning, as I feel that is representing the situation well.

Right now there is quite a lot of cloud, but some clearings in the cloud too. Even some sun peeking through in places. But the forecast does tell us to expect more snow so we'll just have to see what nature brings us...

Kagura is currently part open:

- 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 quad (8:30am-3:30pm)

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

1500m of the main Kagura course is available for skiing/snowboarding. The Mitsumata Area is used as a connecting course.

Other ski resorts in the region are closed as we wait for snow (and planned opening dates!)
