Yesterday was fine and sunny right through until the lifts stopped, just some cloud hanging around giving an overcast kind of hue to things. A mild day as well, followed by some strong and noisy winds overnight. The wind seems to have calmed down somewhat but still some gusts from time to time here at town level and some disruption to lifts up at Kagura (see later).

Unfortunately, it is raining this morning as well - as per forecast really. Not heavy rain at the moment just a light drizzly kind of rain. It was really quite warm overnight as well and did not dip below +4 degrees which is very unusual considering that usually we are getting really cold overnight well into the minuses. It's even into positive numbers up at Kagura this morning.

Right now it is +5 degrees and a high of around 7 or 8 degrees is on the local forecast for Yuzawa. It feels almost spring-like at the moment. This is not totally unusual for late February of course, and last year the winter conditions did return in early March, so hopefully a similar pattern might happen this year. There's still not really much chance of snow over the next few days and at least into next week.

The wind is affecting lifts at Kagura - which is open from the Mitsumata Ropeway to the Kagura No1 quad lift. It looks like the Dragondola is not going to be moving today as well. Higher lifts at Naeba are also affected by the wind today and so limited operations there too.

Gala Yuzawa also seems to be closed today due to the winds.
