Morning from Yuzawa. It's a fairly chilly five degrees at the moment and the heavy rain that we seem to have had so much of lately has continued... all through yesterday and still falling now. It really is coming down.

That's at town level. Higher up things are looking much whiter on the mountainsides around town. For example, the upper slopes of Iwappara, Kandatsu, Ishiuchi and Maiko all have a thin dusting of snow on show.

Higher up at Kagura there seems to be more but whether they can open up any part of their resort Wednesday (23rd) as planned is still unknown... just spoke with the resort and they will be making a decision on that tomorrow. So we will keep you posted on that both on here and the Naeba Now report pages.

After today it looks like the weather will be clearing up tomorrow and perhaps Wednesday as well so there's not a huge amount we can expect before then. Thursday looks like it might bring with it more, and so even if Kagura can't make the 23rd, perhaps soon after might be a go.


Afternoon update:

Kagura have announced that they will be able to open on Wednesday as planned.

600m of the main course at Kagura with a width of 30-50m will be open and they are saying that it's not suitable for beginners. The Mitsumata Ropeway will be operating from 8:30am taking people up to a shuttle bus which will then take you to the Kagura Gondola (the resort noting that this journey takes 30-40 minutes).

The Kagura No1 pair lift will be servicing the run that is open.

It is unclear how much of the snow will be stuff that has fallen from the sky and how of it will have come from machines -- hopefully we might be enlightened on that a bit more tomorrow...

So there you go, ski season starto!
