Good morning and it's a fine morning in Yuzawa. The sun is out, it is nice and bright and comfortably warm - a bit like yesterday, and definitely warmer than the end of last week! Perhaps this week we will see a return to something like normal weather conditions.

As the snow line continue to retreate and snow melt away, the Family Course and Gondola Line at Mitsumata are now officially only "connecting courses" to get to and from the Kagura area.... snow is getting thin on the ground and the courses are narrow, so things are getting more restricted as the days go on.

The official snow depth still says 250cm, but at this stage of the season in particular I think we need to take that with a pinch of salt - there no doubt are places with that much, but there are also patches with no snow! Just to keep in mind!

The following lifts plan to be operating this week (Monday 14th to Friday 18th):

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

Looks like a chance of rain tomorrow, followed by clearer conditions for the rest of the week.

Kagura is open until Sunday 27th May.
