Snow and weather reports posted on Monday 19th April 2021
Friday 16th May 2014, 8:25am
Some mixed weather conditions over the last few days with a bit of rain and some strong winds as well at times. It got all dark and murky mid afternoon yesterday. Also pretty hot as well on Wednesday -- I think it was Wednesday... lose count when the reports aren't daily!
Temperatures overnight here at town level have been keeping above 10 degrees.
It's mostly cloudy early this morning but sun is forecast for the day, with rain expected later on but hopefully it will hold off until evening. It might rain until early tomorrow but fingers crossed will clear up for most of the day.
Here's the lifts that are open now at Kagura:
-Mitsumata Ropeway (open 8am on weekdays; 7:30am on Saturdays and holidays) -Mitsumata Number 1 quad lift -Mitsumata Number 3 romance lift -Mitsumata Number 2 romance lift (open when very busy; closed on weekdays)
-Kagura Gondola -Kagura Number 1 quad lift -Kagura Number 1 romance lift (closed on weekdays)
-Gondola course -Kagura main course -Technical course -Giant course -Kagura park
The Mitsumata area is now what they call a 'connecting area' back down to the Mitsumata Ropeway - so basically you can just use it at the end of your day to get back down to the Ropeway and base.
Until 25th May: Kagura (the main Kagura area via Mitsumata Ropeway)
All other resorts in the region are closed for the season.
