I thought I would give the Naeba Now page a quick update with the latest.

The weekend was quite a busy one, especially up at Kagura. With less skiing options available and arguably the best snow in the region up at Kagura, it proves very popular at the end of the season. There were a fair few people at Naeba as well.

Spring continues to take control here in this region with mild temperaturs and spring-like winds. This morning started off with blue skies over Naeba and Kagura, but since then some cloud has appeared above us. Some forecasts tell us that there's a chance of rain as well, but it doesn't feel like that will happen. We can probably expect warm, clear and sunny conditions through into and including the weekend.

Over at Kagura, here's a run down of what lifts are moving weekdays at the moment:

Mitsumata Ropeway
Mitsumata No1 quad lift
Mitsumata No2 pair lift
Kagura Gondola
Kagura No1 quad lift
Kagura No4 pair lift
Kagura No5 pair lift (this top lift plans to be open until 6th May)
Tashiro Ropeway
Tashiro No1 pair lift
Tashiro No2 pair lift
Tashiro No1 quad lift
Tashiro No6 pair lift
Tashiro No8 pair lift

Next update on this page on Friday with the latest for the weekend.


We will update this Naeba Now report before each weekend right through until the season at Kagura, and in the meantime we will be keeping the Yuzawa Now! reports going on a daily basis right through until the last ski lift stops moving.

If you don't already know, the Yuzawa Now! page can be found here:
