Update:

Confirmed from Kagura: quad lift operating; panorama course closed; opening times updated

Original report:

Good morning from Yuzawa.

There is a lot of cloud around this morning, some of it rather grey and heavy looking. There is a chance of some rain today, particularly to the north of Yuzawa, and a higher chance of that happening tomorrow.

It was a rather mild weekend so we are all hoping to see some colder conditions soon. It's about this time when many of us are giving forecasts more attention and look to see some cute yukidaruma snowmen lining up. There're not there in big numbers just yet, so let's remain patient.

Kagura, of course, remain open. From the information available at the time of writing, they seem to be keeping the Kagura quad lift operating and not using the pair lift up there, which seems fair as that in itself does not affect terrain that is available. Having said that, after opening the Panorama course over the weekend, only the main run appears to be available today. So it's the 1,500m main run that is officially open. They are being shy about lift opening times for this week, but I presume it's going to be 8:00am.

Operating lifts:

- Mitsumata Ropeway (8:00am until 4:30pm)
- Mitsumata Number 1 quad lift (8:00am until 2:30pm)
- Mitsumata Number 2 romance lift (8:15am until 4:00pm)
