Happy anniversary Naeba! Yes, into the 50th year of operations at Naeba. Lots of changes, lots of memories. Here's to the next 50. Lots of little events going on today so you might bump into those as well as Santa if you are out there today.

Here's the news for the morning... 'all' of Naeba is now officially open. There's a big 'but' though...

The Gondolas, including the Dragondola, are all not moving this morning due to strong winds. Some of the other higher slopes that were due to be open today aren't able to due to the conditions as well. So while we should be all open, things are limited. Which is a shame given the 50th Anniversary stuff. Oh well, nothing that can be done about that.

If the winds calm down a bit, we can expect some of them to open up later on.

Anyway, it is a cold morning we have had perhaps 10-15cm of new snow and there are some fairly strong winds blowing things around.

Kagura actually all still seems to be able to open this morning and they now have both the Mitsumata quads moving and the area around the Dragondola is also now open at Tashiro. They have also announced that the 'downhill' course at Mitsumata that goes back down to the car park will open as soon as they deem it safe. No work on when they think that will be, but will let you know.

We are still due snow today and over the weekend - very probably heavy snow with some strong winds.

Today is the start of the 3 day Christmas weekend (today is a national holiday) so we can expect more people to be out there... might get busy!

Resort Operations, 23rd Dec (subject to change)
No4 and No5 courses near base, Takenokodaira, Daishamen, Downhill, Wakuwaku courses
Pretty much all of Kagura is open
