Good morning and what a good morning it is. You want snow? We got it!

Kagura are this morning reporting 70-80cm of fresh snow since yesterday. 70-80cm! It's a cold morning about -9 degrees at the top there and I think it goes without saying that conditions will be..... nice! Apart from a few small areas, all areas of Kagura are now open. And I want to be there.

At Naeba the Gondola No2, No5 high speed, No4 pair, Daishamen pair and Takenokodaira pair lifts are operating with the respective courses bottom and top open. So still limited there but I would expect things to open up fairly quickly especially as we are due the snow to continue during the day today.

The Dragondola plans to start operating from 23rd December and so that connection between Naeba and Tashiro is of course not yet open.

Enjoy!

Resort Operations, 17th Dec (subject to change)
Naeba:
No4 and No5 courses near base, Takenokodaira and Daishamen up top
Kagura:
All areas open apart from Mitsumata downhill course (down to Ropeway base) and Dragondola connecting area at Tashiro.

Official snow depths
Naeba:
50cm
Kagura:
120cm
