After a few days of limited operations, we're all back open today with all of Kagura open and the planned bits of Naeba open as well. It was a wild ride, but things are much MUCH calmer this morning. Almost no wind at all even which is quite the contrast.

It is snowing, lightly, this morning as well. Just a few cm here in Naeba and up to 5cm or so reported by the people at Kagura so a thin fresh layer on top of what we had yesterday. So conditions up top should be pretty decent I would guess. I'll take a look myself a bit later on.

More snow for today, tomorrow and perhaps even into Saturday? Looks like it. Unknown is how much, but the weekend is shaping up to possibly be a fine one.

Just as a reminder, Naeba will be open until this coming Sunday - 8th April - and then after that just on the following two weekends - April 14th/15th and April 21st/22nd

The Tashiro part of Kagura plans to be open until 6th May, with the Mitsumata Ropeway operating until 27th May. Usually the snow has gone from the Mitsumata slopes, but the upper Kagura slopes are open and you get there via Mitsumata. We'll just see how the snow sticks around this season.

Resort Operations, 5th April (subject to change)
Open as planned - No2 Gondola, No5 quad, Takenokodaira pair.
Open as normal.
