This week we have seen a mix of weather conditions in Yuzawa. It got quite warm mid-week but this morning it is a fairly cool start to the day. It is a cloudy morning but rain is forecast.

A cloudy start early on at Kagura but for the day the forecast is cloud and rain at times. Looks like the weekend should be clearer conditions though and we will likely be treated to some sun.

There's still really good snow cover up on the main run at Kagura, though the Mitsumata area is now officially just used for connecting to get over to and back from that main area. The resort are doing their best to keep a thin strip of snow available for that purpose, but the surrounding areas in Mitsumata are now dry and lots of lovely fresh spring green colours to enjoy. It's much better getting to Kagura by lift than bus though, so great that they can keep it open this long.

The following lifts plan to be operating this weekend at Kagura (Sunday 19th and Sunday 20th):

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

The Ropeway will start it's day of work at 7:30am tomorrow and Sunday - it's expected to be busy and the car park will fill up fast. An early start is highly recommended if possible.

Kagura plans to be open until Sunday 27th May.
