If all is going to plan, the first people should be getting on the Mitsumata Ropeway as I type this and the Yuzawa ski season will have officially kicked off. The first Ropeway is scheduled to start from 8am. Sadly I'm not there myself.

Recap on what is open - the Mitsumata Ropeway is operating taking people up to a waiting shuttle bus that will take them over to the base of the Kagura Gondola; from there the Gondola takes you up to the main Kagura area where the Number 1 quad lift is open daily (and the Kagura Number 1 Romance pair lift on weekends) and servicing the 20-50m wide, 1500m long main course.

After that beautiful day yesterday, it's another sunny start to the day this morning. Some cloud around but mostly blue sky and that is what the forecast tells us to expect today -- with a high of 14 degrees down in town, so it will feel rather warm out there today. It's already about 5 degrees at 8am so definitely not as cold as it has been of late.

There is no major snowfall on the weeks forecast, maybe a sprinkling early in the week which will be rain in town. Kagura will no doubt get the man-made top ups each evening to keep things 'fresh'. Have fun if you are making it up there.
