Good morning from Yuzawa.

Those winds yesterday and last night! It felt and sounded like a typhoon going on out there. No wonder Kagura was closed for the day.

It was rather warm too, borderline hot. I heard on the news last night that some parts of Niigata Prefecture actually recorded temperatures just over 30C.

There was some heavy rain overnight and sadly it is still raining this morning, though forecast to clear up and the sun to make an appearance later on. It's not going to be as warm/hot over the next few days, but there should be sunshine from early on in the day tomorrow.

As I updated yesterday afternoon, there's more Kagura related news today:

First of all, the Tashiro area has now closed for the season (they were planning to keep going until Sunday 8th May). That means that the Tashiro Ropeway is now resting and the only way to get up to the open skiable area at Kagura is via the Mitsumata Ropeway.

In addition, the only course that now remains open at Kagura is the main 1500m long Kagura course. Note that this course is not suitable for beginners.

The Kagura Park is remains open.

On the way back to the Mitsumata Ropeway at the end of the day you can ski back down the Mitsumata plastic snow mat course if you like - or if you don't like doing that, you can ride the Mitsumata Number 1 quad lift back down.

Kagura

The main 1500m course at Kagura (and 'Kagura Park') remain open - get there via the Mitsumata Ropeway.
The Tashiro area has now closed for the season.
Kagura are still keeping their 'Kagura is planning to be open until 29th May' message up there, though it does seem very optimistic.
