Good morning from Yuzawa.

It is a beauty of a morning too. There are mostly clear blue skies (some thin clouds staring to appear) and the sun is out. A high of around 15C is expected in town today.

Since that first report of the season two weeks ago, temperatures have generally remained rather mild. Very comfortable actually. And not just in this region, but in Japan generally. We have enjoyed some beautiful autumn colours this season but it would be nice to see more signs of winter coming at this stage.

Kagura is hoping to be able to open for the season next Friday, on the 23rd of November. There have been some light dustings of snow up there and snow making machines are at times trying to pump out some snow to get things going but generally the mountains are still bare. The forecast seems to show some potential for snow higher up early next week, but it does not look like it would be enough to kick things off. But you never know and things can change quickly, so we'll just have to wait and see how things develop over the next week.

Below are the planned opening dates at ski resorts in Yuzawa and Minamiuonuma. They are all (of course) subject to change depending on weather and snow. As you can see, most of them plan to be opening around the middle of December so we have a full month left before then. It is still very early...

It looks like the small Ludens Yuzawa ski hill will not be operating for the 2018-2019 season. The official reason is 'maintenance' and it is unclear if and when it will re-open.

---

In a coming report we will bring you details of the exciting new developments over at the Ishiuchi Maruyama resort. We took a close-up look at the new Gondola and 6 seater lifts last week and it looks like they are going to be unveiling some impressive new facilities when they open next month.

See you next week.
