We have had a few really warm days this week, though it has cooled down somewhat today. Definitely cooler, almost chilly overnight last night, and after some rain later on in the day yesterday this morning is just cloudy. Calm with not much of a wind at all.

From tomorrow (Saturday) until Monday, here's the lifts that are scheduled to be open at Kagura:

Mitsumata Ropeway
Mitsumata No1 quad
Mitsumata No2 quad
Mitsumata No2 pair
Mitsumata No3 pair (open when busy)
Kagura Gondola
Kagura No1 quad
Kagura No4 pair
Kagura No5 pair
Tashiro Ropeway
Tashiro No1 pair
Tashiro No2 pair
Tashiro No4 pair
Tashiro No1 quad
Tashiro No6 pair
Tashiro No8 pair

So as you can see, pretty much all open - expect crowds, and an early start is recommended... there will definitely people waiting for those first Ropeways of the day. Those will be at 7:30am.

Naeba of course will be open for Golden Week from tomorrow until Sunday 6th May. The No2 Gondola and Takenokodaira pair lift will be operating over there, starting at 8:30am.

The official snow depth numbers have not changed much in the last week but there has definitely been a lot of snow melt going on. The lower slopes of Naeba are now more bare than covered in snow, but still plenty to play in up top.

The forecast for the weekend is good. Sunny skies, warm temperatures, just some cloud perhaps.

Should be fun. Hope to see you up there.


Next update on Tuesday. In the meantime, daily updates - including news from Naeba and Kagura - on our Yuzawa Now report page:
