Original report:

Good morning from Naeba.

So here we are. It is Sunday 5th April 2020 and the last day of the 2019-2020 season at Naeba.

We are ending the season with the Prince Number 2 Gondola and upper Takenokodaira pair lift operating this morning. You can still slide back down to base on a narrow course back, or choose to get the gondola back down.

What a season is has been. No-one could claim that it has been a classic, but it certainly has been memorable/eventful/challenging. Naeba has done well dealing with less snow than usual and then with the troubling coronavirus situation. There was also the World Cup event in the middle of it all - the first day happened but they had to cancel the second day due to weather conditions.

So a big thank you to all of the staff and everyone involved in keeping things going through it all. They all deserve a period of rest and recharge.

We might not have enjoyed the amount of snow that we usually expect, but that doesn't mean there hasn't been some great days. There has. And I personally am going to try and remember those.

If you came to Naeba I hope that you were able to come when conditions were good and enjoyed your time here.

Let us hope that for the 2020-2021 season we can get back to something more like 'normal'.

Thank you for reading. Take care. And bai-bai.

PS: The Dragondola plans to be operating for the spring sightseeing season from 25th April until 31st May.

SnowJapan will add a further general message to this report sometime in the coming weeks.
