Good morning from Yuzawa.

A lovely warm day yesterday, though not quite as warm as Tuesday. Similar weather conditions are set to continue.

Just saw on the morning news that Tokyo is expected to warm up to 27C today! Yikes.

Due to forecast wind higher up today, the Tashiro Area of Kagura is closed. It looks like the top lift and Kagura Number 1 quad (in the central Kagura Area) is also affected, so Kagura as a whole is only open via Mitsumata up to the Kagura Number 1 pair lift.

It doesn't feel particularly windy down here in town this morning, and GALA Yuzawa is opening as planned.

-----

Sadly, it looks like Tokyo and a few other urban areas are headed back into that 'state of emergency' status in the coming days, due to rising covid numbers once again.

Will let you know if that affects Kagura or GALA Yuzawa in any way.
