Yuzawa Now!

Monday 20th April 2009, 15:24pm
Weather conditions: Sunny, hazy
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Hazy blue skies today in Yuzawa and region along with a very warm blowing wind this afternoon. It may not be the hottest of days this year but the wind (and perhaps even rising humidity) really make it feel very far from winter now... it won't be long before people are calling it 'too hot'.

Anyway, 20 degrees right now and only Naeba and Kagura open today as the winds have mean Gala Yuzawa has been closed today.

Stronger winds tonight and then rain and some very strong winds are forecast for tomorrow all of .....

Naeba Now!

Monday 20th April 2009, 15:32pm
Weather conditions: Cloud, fine
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
After a weekend of generally fine and warm weather, it's a cloudy haze today and fairly strong winds building up this afternoon. 10 degrees this afternoon, even up on the top of the mountain. Lift operations are back to the weekday arrangement with the No2 Gondola and two pair lifts higher up operating.

Strong winds and rain on the forecast for the region tomorrow so there is a likelihood that will affect the lifts...

It's worth reminding that on Satursdays and Sundays and national holidays from now the Mitsumata Ropeway will be opening from 7am.

We will continue to make updates to this Naeba Now! page at least a few times a week, but from now on until the end of the season at Kagura the daily reporting from the Yuzawa area of Niigata will move over to the Yuzawa Now! report section, so remember to check out that page as well for the latest.   Read more ...

It's a warm one today. Earlier on this morning even, it was a whopping 18 degrees on Yamabiko.

We're down to just the Nagasaka Gondola and the two Yamabik lifts at the top now. If you fet your t-shirt on and some sunscreen though, still plenty of fun to be had up there.

Yamabiko 2 quad
