Blue sky and cloud, sun
Morning from Yuzawa.
The sun is out again this morning and it's a mix of cloud and blue sky up there to start the day. More cloud due later in the day along with the chance of some light rain around lunchtime or early afternoon. Sunny skies are forecast for tomorrow.
It's not going to warm up much beyond 20C here in town over the next few days and the usual early May big warm up doesn't seem to be due over the coming week either. Which I'm sure lots of people will like!
While Kagura remains open, I plan to post new Yuzawa Now reports about twice a week, and of course if there is any big news to share.
The main 1500m course at Kagura (and 'Kagura Park') remain open - get there via the Mitsumata Ropeway. On the way back to the Mitsumata Ropeway at the end of the day you can ski back down the Mitsumata plastic snow mat course if you like - or if you don't like doing that, you can ride the Mitsumata Number 1 quad lift back down. The Tashiro area has now closed for the season.
Kagura still officially plans to remain open until 29th May but there is a good chance that will not be possible. Recommend you take a look at the webcam images - below (on the main site) - and compare with this time last season to get a general idea of where we stand. A quick look at the webcam images on the below report pages shows the snow melt situation around two weeks ahead of last year:
