It has been a week of mixed weather conditions with our share of rain as well as sunshine yesterday. Today we started off with some blue skies, but since then it has quite quickly cloudy over and rain is forecast for this morning but it shouldn't be around for too long.

Forecasts for the weekend show sunny skies and quite warm temperatures, before we get back to some rainy conditions early in the week.

Here's what Naeba plans to have open for Saturday and Sunday:

- Number 2 Gondola (8:30am until 4pm)
- Takenokodaira Romance lift (8:45am until 4pm)
- Number 5 high-speed lift (8am until 4:30pm)

All of the Kagura areas should be open as normal (but remember that the Dragondola connecting Naeba with Tashiro will not be open). Official Kagura snow depth is now on 330cm.

---

Naeba:
Naeba will now be open only on Saturdays and holidays until May 6th (not including April 29th).

Kagura:
The Tashiro area will be open until May 6th.
The main Kagura area, via Mitsumata Ropeaway, will be open daily right through until May 31st.

As Naeba will from now only be opening on the weekends through Golden Week, the Naeba Now report daily updates have now finished for the season. We plan to update this report page with a pre-weekend report each week until Golden Week.

For daily reports from the Yuzawa region, please check out the Yuzawa Now reports on SnowJapan. Yuzawa Now will be updated on a daily basis through until Golden Week and after that we'll keep you updated regularly until the lifts finally stop moving at Kagura.
