A very cloudy start to the day in Yuzawa and while some of the fog and low cloud has lifted since this morning it is still a cloudy afternoon. We have been keeping dry though which is good - got rained on again last night for a while there.

Weather conditions for the start of the holidays tomorrow looks good. The forecast is for sun and clear skies as well as it being very warm. Some forecasts predict that the temps will rise to perhaps around 24 degrees tomorrow afternoon.

From tomorrow we have 4 resorts open for the Golden Week period, up until 6th May - Naeba, Kagura, Gala Yuzawa and Kandatsu Kogen. Kagura offers by far the biggest area with most of the resort able to remain open even at this late stage which is great news. The other resorts plan to finish on 6th May but Kagura will carry on until late May.

Planned Kagura lifts for Golden Week, opening at 7:30am:

Mitsumata Ropeway
Mitsumata No1 quad
Mitsumata No2 quad
Mitsumata No2 pair
Mitsumata No3 pair (open when busy)
