Yesterday. Wow. Amazing conditions out there for the people making the trip and the 20cm that was reported by the resort seemed to be an underestimate with lots of fresh snow to play in up there at Kagura. Perhaps the 30-50cm of additonal fresh snow that the resort is reporting early this morning makes up for that, but whatever the numbers the bottom line is that there has just been a good dump of new snow and conditions on the slopes are excellent. End of March?! More like January!

With many other resorts in Yuzawa now closed or just part open, there were actually a fair few people at Kagura yesterday. I would expect more of the same today, especially this morning as people looking for a snow hit will be treated early on.

There's a bit of wind this morning and stronger forecast for later on in the day but the snow should ease off and we should be seeing clearer conditions tomorrow and Tuesday along with milder temperatures.

For now, though, it's -8 degrees up at Kagura... so wrap up for mid-winter!

Naeba has also seen some decent snowfall with officially 20-30cm since yesterday.

Operations at Naeba and Kagura for Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th March are as follows:

- No 3 quad lift
- No 4 quad lift
- No 5 quad lift

This means that the lower courses on the mountain are open (all upper areas closed).

- Mitsumata No1 Quad
- Mitsumata No2 Quad
- Mitsumata No2 Pair
- Kagura Gondola
- Kagura No1 Quad

Courses open are the Mitsumata runs and the main courses down from the top and the Gondola course at Kagura.
