Good morning from Yuzawa.

Kagura is still going with the main 1500m run is still open - just a bit less snow and width each day. Today it isn't expected to warm up much over 20 degrees during the day here in town, probably a bit warmer tomorrow. The sun is out at the moment and so it looks like it should be a fine day.

Saturday 14th 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 chance that will not be possible.

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

I thought it might be a good time to mention the plans for the upcoming 'Kagura Summer Gelande':

A 1100m long and (up to) 50m wide course of artificial PIS・LAB 'snow mats', located on the Family Course of the Mitsumata area of Kagura resort.

The Mitsumata Ropeway and Mitsumata Number 1 quad lift will be operating to service the course.
