Lots of cloud and eventually rain again yesterday, not getting as warm as we were expecting. Didn't feel like it anyway. Lots of fog last night too.

This morning as of 9am it's just under 10 degrees after only getting down to about 7 degrees overnight.

Conditions are just cloudy for the moment though I can see from webcams that there's blue sky above Naeba and Kagura, so maybe it'll clear up. The forecast tells us to expect rain though, so perhaps it'll be the other way round.

Kagura and GALA Yuzawa open as planned this morning. Note that the downhill course (Falcon) at GALA Yuzawa is now closed and so you need to get the Gondola back down to base.

---

And talking of Kagura, they have lost 20cm from their official snow depth, which was officially stuck on 350cm for what seems like a few months!

The Kagura Park plans to open this morning.

---

Official snow depths:
** General opening status - any unplanned closures will be mentioned in above report.

GALA Yuzawa:
Official snow depth of 260cm.
The Central Area and most of the North Area.
The South Area is now closed.
The downhill course is also now closed - get down back to base using the Gondola.

Kagura:
Official snow depth of 330cm.
All three main areas of Kagura remain pretty much fully open.
The 'Kagura Park' plans to re-open today (15th)

---
