Good morning everybody from Naeba.

Today's weather is wintery! With 8cm of snow having fallen overnight and more falling as we speak Naeba has had a very widespread coating of snow today (though still not as much as the forecast yesterday was telling us to expect).

The wind is pretty harsh out there today so you definitely don't want to go anywhere without a balaclava and plenty of layers.

Today the bottom half of the mountain is open with the top currently on wind hold.

Still no end to the snow in sight on the weather forecast. The heaviest snow is meant to fall today and over the coming weekend.

Naeba 6-day snow and weather forecast

Naeba Now ski lift operation notes:

Today's lift operations are a little bit free form as what opens and stays open completely depends on whether the wind dies down at all.

For now the bottom half of the mountain is open:
High Speed lift No.4
High Speed 5
Beginner lift No. 4
High Speed 3
Romance Lift No. 1
are all confirmed open.

Currently on wind hold are:
Gondola No.2
The Dragondola
The Takenokodaira Romance Lift
