It's another bumper snow morning in the area this morning, with the top headline of the day being the '50-60cm' of new snowfall overnight that Kagura are reporting. Pretty stylish don't you think? Conditions up there should certainly be amazing this morning with all that snow to play around with.

Things are doing well for themselves here in the village and the Naeba slopes as well. While we didn't get the same amount we have seen another healthy snowfall to add to the base. Other than a few lifts that might open a bit late today, and the Daishamen paid lift, all of the resort is open this morning. The only course not open at Kagura is the course between lifts No6 and No8 and the top course that is only open from late Febraury of course. But I think we can still call it pretty much all open. There's certainly no shortage of area and untouched snow out there this morning.

It is still snowing lightly now and cloud is covering the top of the Naeba mountain. Similar conditions are forecast for the day and tomorrow though more of a chance of things clearing up a bit tomorrow than today. After that it looks like things are going to warm up a bit with some fine weather conditions in the week.


Just one thing that we should perhaps point out and make a bit clearer - regarding the course at Mitsumata that goes down from the base of the No1 quad to the Mitsumata car park. They need for there to be enough snow there to open and so it doesn't always open until we are a bit into the season, but generally now it is available to ski/board every day. However, they don't open it up straight away each day (I don't suppose that many people want to use it in a morning!) and so sometimes it takes time for them to make the course available. There are some days as well, depending on conditions, when it won't be open.

But generally it does open later in the day and usually will be available at the end of the day if you prefer to go down there than on the Mitsumata Ropeway.

Resort Operations, 14th January (subject to change)
All areas open, a few lifts opening late this morning. Daishamen lift not operating.
Pretty much all courses that are supposed to be open are!
