Yuzawa Now!

Friday 11th May 2012, 9:25am
Weather conditions: Cloud, rain
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
I said in thast last report that things should remain dry for the week... well it didn't quite turn out that way with some unsettled conditions and rain at times - including this morning. Cloudy with rain showers for the day today, surprisingly cool as well, is what we have lined up today. Perhaps some more tomorrow with clearer and brighter conditions more likely for Sunday.

The following lifts plan to be operating this weekend (Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th):

Mitsumata Ropeway
Mitsumata No1 quad
Mitsumata No3 pair
Kagura Gondola
Kagura No1 pair
Kagura No1 quad

Just over two more weeks to go at Kagura. Snow in the Mitsumata area is retreating quickly now and is patchy - though you can still ski down to the top of the Ropeway. Some snow moving going on to keep those runs open. Surely most people will be getting straight up to Kagura though - where these is still great cover - and staying there for the day and only coming back to Mitsumata at the end of the day...?

Have a good weekend.   Read more ...

Shiga Kogen Now!

Weather conditions: Fog, cloud, sleet, snow!

Good morning from Shiga Kogen. We are at the end of the week and Shibutoge will remain open.

Here's the pretty crazy news.... we got some new snow! Yes, it has been cold enough since last night for snow to be falling here! Earlier on the temperature was below zero. Not bad for getting on the middle of May. Not the best of conditions to be out there though - poor visibility and a moderate wind, but if you to touch that fresh snow again....

Yokoteyama are reporting up to 10cm of new snow and also that the Shiga Kogen - Kusatsu section of Route 292 is closed this morning due to the snowfall. The sightseeing "Skylater" facility isn't open yet either... so we're not quite into sightseeing season yet.

The forecast for the weekend currently says that conditions should clear up a bit tomorrow though there may be a bit left over from today in the morning. Sunday looks to be the better bet for clearer conditions generally.
