Strong winds were blowing about by yesterday afternoon and they are still with us this morning. It's cloudy and a bit hazy early on, but no snow to report as yet. The forecast now has heavy rain forecast for this afternoon which should hopefully turn into snow - so we are going to have to wait just a bit longer.

Whatever the weather tonight, Tashiro plan to open up for the weekend and more of Naeba is hoping to open as well (up top using the Gondola No2 and one pair lift).

More later on tonight with the latest.



Evening update. What a miserable day it turned out to be. Very mild temperatures for the time of year and since this afternoon heavy rain with it really boucing off the floor at times. It is still raining heavily here in town, but happily it is already snowing up at Kagura. They don't seem to be expecting too much with just 5-10cm or so forecast overnight, perhaps not as much as we were hoping for. Lets hope they are underestimating there. (In fact there is more snow forecast currently for Minamiuonuma to the north of Yuzawa).

While some snow is forecast for Saturday, it's not looking like the snow clouds will stick around for long with finer weather once more forecast for Sunday until around Tuesday.

At Kagura today apparently the shuttle bus has been in use again and will also be tomorrow - unless there is enough snow overnight to make Mitsumata more rideable than it currently is. Borderline by the sounds of it. The shuttle takes people from the top of the Mitsumata Ropeway to the Kagura Gondola base station.

Remember also that tomorrow the Tashiro Ropeway will be taking people up to the runs at Tashiro. A fair bit of Tashiro plans to be open but please note that you will not be able to get over to the main Kagura area.

Yuzawa Now ski lift operation notes:

Kagura Mitsumata is mostly open and a run at Naeba (artificial snow) is open. Other resorts in the area are closed as we wait for more snow.
