Yuzawa Now!

Weather conditions: Cloud
New snowfall: 0cm
Snow depth: 0cm
Not a great start to the weekend I'm afraid.

Yesterday ended up nice and sunny mid morning before clouding over again and by evening it was raining - heavily at times. A bit chilly too out there.

This morning as of 8am it is still raining. Looks like it has been raining through the night. Temperature currently 9 degrees in town.

In Kagura news, at the start of the day they are going to have the Kagura quad lift on hold due to strong winds.

The forecast is for conditions to improve this morning - might even end up sunny - and so expect Kagura to open up the quad if they can. They are reporting a cold +3C temperature early on, so get wrapped up if you are venturing out.

Let's hope conditions improve quickly.

Tomorrow should be calmer with no rain forecast currently - more like sun/cloud.

Courses open:

-Gondola course
-Kagura main course
-Technical course

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.
