Some rain yesterday for a short while but we are back to the warm and sunny weather this morning. It's fairly hazy but blue skies all round and a temperature of 21 in the town.
Courses remaining open at Kagura are the main course, Technical Course, Giant Course and the Gondola Course.
The weather should be good for the weekend as well with lots of sun on the forecast, especially tomorrow with a probably high of around 25 degrees.

Well after that snow, things warmed up again and it has generally been fine weather with some rainy periods once or twice. This morning, the sun is out and it is already 15 degrees up at Kagura. It looks like we should see fine and sunny conditions over the weekend as well.
Lifts that remain operating at Mitsumata/Kagura are as follows:
The Mitsumata lifts are only operating to take people up to the Kagura Gondola - the courses at Mitsumata are now officially closed and only to be used as "connecting" courses" to get to, and back from, Kagura. The snow at Mitsumata is now thin on the ground and it's just a narrow run back down to the Ropeway.
Regular updates from the Yuzawa area until the end of the season can be found on the main Yuzawa Now page.

I never actually closed the year out here...
It was a really good year in Myoko; some strange weather at the end of February (remember the rain?), and then winter came back again through March and April. But, with some days of genuine powder, there are no complaints here.
Looking forward to writing again next year; if there are any changes in the area, I'll give a pre-season report some time in November or so, as soon as the white stuff is starting to fall.
