Morning from Yuzawa and it has been raining heavily overnight and this morning. Sometimes easing off a bit but then coming back heavy again and that is pretty much is what the forecast is for today and tomorrow as well - perhaps less heavy tomorrow.

It's colder than it has been as well with a high of around 16C forecast for today.

Due to the weather conditions the Tashiro area of Kagura is closed today, and Kagura is open up until the Kagura Number 1 lift.

Yesterday it seems was the last day of the season for the Tashiro Number 1 connecting course at the Tashiro area and a few other runs now seem to be showing as closed on the official site (sorry, can't get up there to check first hand!)
