Naeba Now!

Friday 18th May 2012, 8:34am
Weather conditions: Cloud
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
A cloudy start early on at Kagura but for the day the forecast is cloud and rain at times. It's a cool start as well - Kagura were reporting a temperature of just 4C at 7:30am. It will probably rise to just over 10C at base today.

Looks like the weekend should be clearer conditions though and we will likely be treated to some sun.

There's still really good snow cover up on the main run at Kagura, though the Mitsumata area is now officially just used for connecting to get over to and back from that main area. The resort are doing their best to keep a thin strip of snow available for that purpose, but the surrounding areas in Mitsumata are now dry and lots of lovely fresh spring green colours to enjoy. It's much better getting to Kagura by lift than bus though, so great that they can keep it open this long.

The following lifts plan to be operating this weekend (Sunday 19th and Sunday 20th):

Mitsumata Ropeway
Mitsumata No1 quad
Mitsumata No3 pair
Kagura Gondola
Kagura No1 pair
Kagura No1 quad

The Ropeway will start it's day of work at 7:30am tomorrow and Sunday - it's expected to be busy and the car park will fill up fast. An early start is highly recommended if possible.

Kagura plans to be open until Sunday 27th May.   Read more ...

This week we have seen a mix of weather conditions in Yuzawa. It got quite warm mid-week but this morning it is a fairly cool start to the day. It is a cloudy morning but rain is forecast.

Shiga Kogen Now!

Good morning from Shiga Kogen.

It has kept fairly cool this week and this morning it was just 4C and cloudy at Yokoteyama. There is a chance of rain today.

Yokoteyama and Shibutoge are still hoping to remain open for skiing until 27th, though at the moment they still only seem to be 100% promising that it can manage until Sunday 20th.... we'll just have to see, as snow is getting thin on the ground now.

Anyway, it looks like the sun should be out over the weekend and it will warm up a bit more. Have a good weekend.

Ski lifts operating:

Yokoteyama No2 Sky lift (triple)
Yokoteyama No3 Sky lift (pair)
Shibutoge No1 pair   Read more ...
