Morning from the region. Sad to have to report rain this morning in the Naeba area and also Mitsumata car park, but it is snowing apparently up near the top of Kagura. Hopefully it might turn into snow lower down as well as we move on today... it should gradually be getting colder and then perhaps ease off again tomorrow.

I just want to look to the weekend now though as it looks like we are on for a considerably storm over the weekend including lots and lots of snowfall (yey) and strong winds (boooo). Why couldn't they do this on a weekday, I hear many people say! Yes, I agree, but we need the snow hey and if we do get a nice big dump over the weekend then we might be set with lots more opening up. So all good, after all we always need more snow.

We'll keep an eye on that and see how it develops over the next few days.

Here are the lifts that are moving from today until Friday:

Mitsumata Ropeway
Mitsumata No1 quad
Mitsumata No3 pair
Kagura Gondola
Kagura No1 quad
Kagura No4 pair

Courses open from today until Friday are:

Mitsumata Family course and Taikai, Gondola line.
Kagura main course, Technical course, Giant course, Panorama course and Gondola course

Official resort snow depth:
Kagura - 130cm

Planned opening dates:
Kagura (Tashiro) on December 8th
Naeba on December 8th
