Hello and good morning from Yuzawa.

It feels quite cool this morning here (though it looks like it's actually around 20C) and mostly cloudy, though I can see a few patches of blue sky in places.

The forecast for the day today though is rain and it might be quite heavy around mid-day and early afternoon; might get windy too. It has been really windy lately...

Kagura have announced that they will be holding an event where you can try to win discount tickets for next season on Sunday (15th May). They have also cancelled the planned 'finale event' that was due to take place on the planned last day of the season, 29th May. I think that's a sign that they don't expect to be open then.

The webcam image shows the main Kagura run looking fairly similar in terms of snow cover to how it looked on 26th May last year.

---

While Kagura remains open, I plan to post new Yuzawa Now reports about twice a week, and of course if there is any big news to share.

Wednesday 11th May 2016:

Kagura

The main 1500m course at Kagura (and 'Kagura Park') remain open - get there via the Mitsumata Ropeway.
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.
The Tashiro area has now closed for the season.

Kagura still officially plans to remain open until 29th May but there is a good chance that will not be possible.
Recommend you take a look at the webcam images - below (on the main site) - and compare with this time last season to get a general idea of where we stand.

All other resorts in Yuzawa and Minamiuonuma are now closed for the season.
