Hello from Yuzawa.

Not the nicest of weather conditions for this first day of the ski season in Yuzawa.

We have had some heavy rainfall overnight and it is still raining now here in town. It is also noticeably milder. Unfortunately quite a bit of that thin layer of snow that we had around town has been washed away. Though not to worry at all of course when we remember that it is still only 23rd November.

So, today is the first day of the season at the Kagura resort and sadly it's even raining up there early on. Looks quite foggy too with limited visibility at the start of the day. The resort is reporting 110cm of snow at Kagura and 60cm at the Mitsumata area - that must surely be a record for recent years.

Here's the lifts are operating at Kagura today:

- Kagura Ropeway
- Mitsumata Number 1 quad
- Mitsumata Number 3 romance lift
- Kagura Gondola
- Kagura Number 1 quad
- Kagura Number 4 romance lift

In addition, moving forward:

- Kagura Number 1 romance lift --- scheduled to be operating on weekends
- Kagura Number 3 romance lift --- scheduled to be operating at busy times

Most of the runs at Kagura and Mitsumata are open and they've even got some park items going by the Kagura Number 1 romance lift.

Great to see so much able to open on the first day, just a pity about the weather conditions.

Hopefully there'll be more fresh natural snowfall over the next few days, though don't be surprised at more rain in town.
