Good morning from Yuzawa and the sun is shining through my window here right now. There's some (early morning) cloud around but lots of blue sky too and a beautiful start to the day. It is going to be a relatively mild day (temperature up to around 10C in town maybe).

We got some rain here in town last night but Kagura is reporting 2cm of fresh snow up top since yesterday, and also that they now have a 1,500m stretch of the main course open - along with the Kagura quad lift operating for the weekend.

So to recap on what is open:

A 1,500m section of the main run at Kagura. The course is 30-50m in width and the natural snow has been helped on by snow making machines giving what the resort reports as 50cm snow depth.

Operating lifts are:

- Mitsumata Ropeway
- Mitsumata Number 1 quad
- Mitsumata Number 2 romance pair
- Kagura Gondola
- Kagura Number 1 quad lift
- Kagura Number 2 romance pair lift

All but the last two are basically operating to get you over to the course area that is open. The lifts can be used to get back down as well, which means that there is no shuttle bus needed. The Mitsumata Ropeway plans to be operating from 8am until 5pm, with the last one going up at 4:30pm.

The forecast seems a bit more promising for tomorrow night into Monday, though it may well start with rain again in town. Kagura may well benefit from some decent snowfall though. I'll keep you updated.

The images below for today are from Kagura, Mitsumata and NASPA Ski Garden.
