Kagura/Mitsumata missed their planned opening date this year but have been open since the end of November. After the last snowfall yesterday, and more white stuff on the way (if the forecast is to be believed), it looks like the rest of the resort will open this weekend. We've been up there for lessons already this season and will be happy to have more slopes open.
With some colder temperatures and a bit more snow hopefully a few more resorts in the Yuzawa region will open up shortly.
We have both ski and snowboard coaches on standby if you are looking for lessons in the Yuzawa area.
