Morning. Another 10-20cm or so in Naeba this morning and, you guessed it, it is still snowing. It just isn't letting up. There's a bit of a wind out there especially higher up but apart from the Dragondola which is on standby, most weekday lifts seem to be moving this morning - though some upper courses at Naeba are closed early on. Expect things to change if and when weather permits. The No2 Gondola is moving though.

Over at Kagura they are reporting another impressive 50-60cm of snowfall overnight, but strong winds are messing around with resort operations again unfortunately. From the Mitsumata Ropeway to the Kagura No1 pair lift and from the Tashiro Ropeway to the Tashiro No1 quad lift areas are open this morning.

By most accounts today would seem to be the last of the heavy snow for a while (perhaps?!) with tomorrow and Saturday looking like there's a chance of light snow but always a chance of things clearing up more. Sun and milder temperatures on Sunday? Would make a change, that's for sure! Let's see how it pans out.

Bottom line though - fantastic snow conditions and lots of deep snow to play in.

Naeba:
Wind affecting operations top areas not open.
Kagura:
Only part open due to strong winds.

310cm
