Good morning from Yuzawa.

This morning Kagura are again reporting some fresh snow - 3cm - and yesterday they got to open their 4000m long Gondola Course.

I'm not seeing that Gondola Course being mentioned again this morning on official sources, but I presume that it will be open again today so keeping it in the info below. I hope that is correct.

Down in town we were hoping for a bit of snow overnight but things are a bit... wet. It's raining, you've got to get higher up for it to be snow. Hopefully that will stop sooner than later.

Forecast? It is still showing milder conditions along with lots of sunshine from tomorrow; that will all last through around mid-week.

Expect slightly later opening times for the lifts at Kagura from tomorrow for weekdays.
