Good morning from Yuzawa.

It is clear and sunny this morning and it is going to be another mild day.

Clouds are due to move in over the region by this afternoon though bringing rain at first and if it gets cold enough snow by tonight. Lets hope we can get another coating of snow on the ground...

The Tashiro area of Kagura is now open. The Tashiro Ropeway, Tashiro Number 1 romance pair, Tashiro Number 2 romance pair and Tashiro Number 1 quad lifts are operating. While both the Mitsumata Ropeway and Tashiro Ropeway are now both open, note that if you want to get over to the main Kagura Area of the resort, you'll need to get there via the Mitsumata Ropeway because the lift and course connection between Tashiro Area and Kagura Area is not yet available. Hope that isn't too confusing!

Maiko Snow Resort, GALA Yuzawa, Yuzawa Kogen, Ishiuchi Maruyama and a few other resorts were planning on now being open but are having to delay as we wait for more snow. They'll get open as soon as they can.
