10-15cm of snow at Kagura overnight according to the offical resort report this morning. I bet you weren't expecting that! Let me just check it isn't April 1st!

Yes it has been pretty cold the last day or two and while it has been raining a lot lower down, seems we have some new white stuff up there to play in which is a fantastic surprise and not expected in mid-May. It is still raining in the village area and likely to be more sleet-y up top.

The forecast is for cold temperatures to continue into tomorrow but clearer weather from Saturday.

Lifts that remain operating at Mitsumata/Kagura are as follows:

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

The Mitsumata lifts are now really only operating to take people up to the Kagura Gondola - the courses at Mitsumata are now officially closed and only to be used as "connecting" courses" to get to, and back from, Kagura. There has certainly been a lot of melt going on there and the snow is thin on the ground now and the courses narrow. Snow cover remains good on the Kagura main courses though, which of course remain open.

Regular updates from the Yuzawa area until the end of the season can be found on the main Yuzawa Now page.

Official Snow Depths:

Kagura:
230cm

The main Kagura area, via Mitsumata Ropeway, plans to be open through until Sunday 30th May.
