4PM UPDATE

It has been very windy down here in town since soon after my morning report, and it's still really blowing about now.

More importantly there's more news from Kagura:

From tomorrow, and as probably expected, the Tashiro area will be closed for the season.
In addition, the only course that will remain open at Kagura will be the main Kagura course.
Note that this course is not suitable for beginners.
The snow mat (plastic) course at Mitsumata will be open but as a connecting course to Kagura - those who do not wish to use the snow mats will be able to ride the Mitsumata Number 1 quad lift back down to the Ropeway top station.

For the record, Kagura are still keeping their Kagura will be 'open until 29th May' (予定 planned) message up there...

ORIGINAL MORNING REPORT

Morning from Yuzawa, and it's a fairly simple report this morning... all of Kagura is closed.

Not 'closed for the season', but just for today due to strong winds forecast for the day.

It doesn't feel particularly windy down here in town just now, but quite strong winds are indeed forecast. Right now it's sunny and bright with some very thin cloud around.

Heavy rain might be falling overnight once again tonight. Things should begin to clear up from tomorrow morning and then sun is forecast for Thursday.

There's probably a chance that the Tashiro area of Kagura may not be able to re-open tomorrow - that's not any official news, just a guess and also what a lot of people are thinking... will report as early as possible tomorrow morning with news.
