Naeba Now!

We are very happy to be able to have the Naeba Now report section back up and running from today.

Naeba (and Kagura) are of course located in Yuzawa Town, but often weather conditions are quite different than what’s happening down in the main town area in Yuzawa and the resorts there. We have tried to give mention to Naeba and Kagura in our main Yuzawa Now report over the last few years, but this report section will allow us to give much more specific first-hand on-the-ground information from Naeba. Which is surely a very good thing indeed.

It’s all new for our reporter and a new system, so you may well see some fine-tuning over the next week or so as we all get into the swing of things. Please bear with us on that point. Also note that as we are starting mid-season, the automated statistics on the bottom of the page will look odd!

Hope you enjoy reading the reports. Without further ado, here we go!

Good morning everyone, I am glad to inform you that the Naeba Now reports are back up and running as of today.

A quick summary of the weather conditions this winter so far. It has been said that Naeba hasn’t had this amount of snowfall in over 40 years (9 and half meters of snowfall to date! Current snow base is between 1.5meters – 2.5meters. It’s shaping up to be a great season and hopefully will only get better.

The light snow that was falling all of yesterday carried through the night giving us 10cms of fresh snow at the bottom of the slopes and up to 20cms up at the peak.

This morning their has been glimmers of sunshine, but unfortunately its looking like the weather is going to close in with some stronger winds which will of course bring us even more snow. So not all bad!

Visibility is better than yesterday, with cloud coverage staying overhead instead of turning into fog.

The whole of Naeba is accessible with all lifts being open, although this could change weather dependent.

Stronger winds are preventing Tashiro from opening this morning and it's a bit limited at the main Kagura area as well, but if you want to go up there it will have to be via the Mitsumata Ropeway.
