Big news this morning as the snow depth at Kagura decreases to 360cm! With the warm temperatures of the last few days and today as well, we can expect that to get lower quickly I think. This morning early on the resort was reporting a temperature of +6. We can expect that to easily rise into double digits.

Some rain might be unavoidable tonight into tomorrow, but temperatures might get down low enough tomorroe afternoon on the upper area of Kagura for it to be sprinklings of snow rather than rain. Fingers crossed on that.

Clearer conditions are likely on Sunday and then a chance of snow again on the mountain around Tuesday. Would be good.

Operations at Kagura (Friday 15th April):

Kagura:
- Mitsumata Ropeway
- Mitsumata No1 Quad
- Mitsumata No2 Pair
- Kagura Gondola
- Kagura No1 Quad
- Kagura No1 Pair
- Kagura No5 Pair

For the coming weekend the second Mitsumata quad and an additional lift at Kagura should be open, as per last weekend.

The downhill course from the bottom of the Mitsumata slopes to the Mitsumata car park is also open for the weekend.

Official Snow Depth:

Kagura:
360cm
