Rain eased off as forecast in the morning but it was back raining lightly for a while in the evening yesterday and felt quite chilly again.

This morning is clearer than yesterday but there's quite a bit of cloud around. The forecast is for sun and so it might well clear up.

Naeba opens up again for today and tomorrow. They have the Number 5 quad lift, the Prince Number 2 gondola and the Takenokodaira pair lift operating and while open terrain is limited you can slide back down to base. Actually there is still decent cover at Naeba.. some ground showing through on lower slopes but by no means getting bare yet.

Kagura remains pretty much all open (though of course not connected by Dragondola at this stage of the season) and over at GALA Yuzawa the Central and North areas are mostly open. (The downhill course at GALA Yuzawa and the South Area is now closed).

With choice of resorts now limited and people wanting to get in last slides of the season, expect places to get rather busy especially at the weekends.


Current planned resort operations:

Weekends only; then 26th-29th April and 3rd-6th May:

Daily until 6th May:
GALA Yuzawa (Central and North Areas)
Kagura (Tashiro area)

Daily until 25th May:
Kagura (Mitsumata and main Kagura area)


All other resorts in the region are now closed for the season.
