Going to be another fine day
It's Friday again, and there's now just 10 days left to go at Kagura (including today).
Still pretty good snow coverage up at the main open Kagura area, though areas outside of the runs are now a lovely fresh green.
Mix of weather since my last report, temperatures are up and down ranging from cool to borderline hot at the moment and some gusty winds at times as well.
Yesterday more sunshine along with a fair few clouds up there.
This morning the sun is out from early on and it's due to be a fine day with high temps of around 26 degrees here at town level. More of the same forecast for tomorrow, with perhaps more cloud around on Sunday.
You can still get from the top of Mitsumata Ropeway to the base of Kagura Gondola using the Mitsumata lifts - no shuttle bus required (*at the time of writing!)

The Mitsumata area is now used as a 'connecting course' - basically to get to and from the main Kagura area. The Ropeway opens at 7:30am on weekends and 8am on weekdays.
All other ski resorts in the region are now closed for the season.
We will be updating the Yuzawa Now page with the latest weather information a couple of times a week until the end of the season at Kagura. Read more ...
