Here we go!

Yes, Kagura is opening from this morning so we are into the ski/snowboard season here in Yuzawa. The resort is reporting 30cm of snowfall overnight on the upper open areas and a snow depth of 50cm. And in an upgrade from what they said yesterday, they are going to get the Kagura Number 1 quad moving and 1500m of the main Kagura course is available. Access via the Mitsumata Ropeway.

It is great to see snow on the ground around town too this morning. 12cm being measured both here in Yuzawa and to the north in the Ishiuchi area of Minamiuonuma.

Light snow still falling in places but it is easing off and by evening some clouds may be clearing.

Tomorrow we are expecting sun and temperatures around 10C in town so it will be noticeably warmer. The snow on the ground this morning may well disappear - though the first snowfall often does.

More snow looks due next week so hopefully we can get set into a nice early winter pattern.

Kagura news: Until last season, during periods when only the main Kagura Area of the resort was open, you had to ski/board down a snow mat area or do some walking on the way over to the Gondola. But this season the resort is going to be operqating the Mitsumata Number 2 pair lift - meaning you can ride the lift down there, eliminating the need to walk down there.
