An early update this morning as there is some big news... Kagura is going to open today, officially starting the snow season here in Yuzawa.

So what exactly is going to be open? Here's what the resort is saying:

A 600m section of the main run at Kagura will be open. The course is 30-50m in width and the natural snow has been helped on by snow making machines giving what the resort reports as 50cm snow depth.

Operating lifts are Mitsumata Ropeway, Mitsumata Number 1 quad, Mitsumata Number 2 romance pair, Kagura Gondola and Kagura Number 1 romance pair lift. All but the last one are basically operating to get you over to the course that is open. The lifts can be used to get back down as well, which means that there is no shuttle bus needed this year. The Mitsumata Ropeway plans to be operating from 8am until 5pm, with the last one going up at 4:30pm.

So there we have it. It's very limited of course, but if you want to get skiing or boarding in Yuzawa... you can.

What's more, it's a lovely morning here with the sun shining and some fine blue skies.

Down here in town most of the snow that fell yesterday has now gone - or will be gone soon - and today and tomorrow temperatures will probably rise close to 10 degrees during the daytime. There's not a whole lot of snow on the forecast for the coming week, even higher up, but we'll keep an eye on that and the forecast as we move forward ever closer to December.
