36 sleeps until the first turns of Winter 2015/16

Kagura opens in just over a month which means winter is super-close now. We're enjoying great autumn weather at the moment with the rice harvest just about finished, some delicious food festivals to celebrate, and the amazing Japanese autumn colors just kicking in.

Our flyers are here and just need delivering to the local accommodations, our ski gear is being taken out of its summer storage, and bookings are starting to increase in number. The Christmas/New Year period is filling up fast so if you are looking to be in Snow Country around that time and are thinking of ski lessons or snowboard lessons in any Yuzawa resort it would be a good idea to get in touch soon.

If you are around in late November, come and join us for some turns to blow those off-season cobwebs away.
