I'm happy to report that this morning is a bright one with the sun out. Looks like Kagura is shrouded in cloud early on, but I suspect that will quickly disappear to leave sunny blue skies up there as well if not somewhat hazy. So things are back to normal after those few days of less than pleasant weather conditions and disruption to lift operations at ski resorts.

There's just a slight breeze early on and right now it is 9C outside. As forecast today should be warming up considerably and it looks like a high of around 18C is likely. Tomorrow we should be in the early 20s.

At Gala Yuzawa, all of the Central and North area courses apart from Roman Holiday are open - including the downhill course.

Lifts at Kagura that are planned to be operating this week are as below:

Mitsumata Ropeway
Mitsumata No1 quad lift
Mitsumata No2 pair lift
Kagura Gondola
Kagura No1 quad lift
Kagura No4 pair lift
Kagura No5 pair lift (this top lift plans to be open until 6th May)
Tashiro Ropeway
Tashiro No1 pair lift
Tashiro No2 pair lift
Tashiro No1 quad lift
Tashiro No6 pair lift
Tashiro No8 pair lift
