UPDATE 12:30pm

Kagura have announced that they will be opening tomorrow morning, Saturday 24th November.

The 1,300m long (and 50-70m wide) main course will be open; and the Kagura Number 1 lift and Number 1 romance lift will be moving.

First Mitsumata Ropeway at 7:30am!

That's all the info available at the moment... full details tomorrow morning.

Original report from earlier this morning

Good morning from Yuzawa and there is good news to report.

Kagura may not be able to open today as it had hoped to, but it is snowing - and snowing down to town level... and there's a thin layer of snow on the ground. It's rather wet, but it's snow (at the time of writing, might be rain in town as the day goes on) and it is the first down to town level this season.

It will be interesting to see how much falls higher up by the end of today - and I will update you again tomorrow with any further info.

It looks like the small Ludens Yuzawa ski hill will not be operating for the 2018-2019 season. The official reason is 'maintenance' and it is unclear if and when it will re-open.
