Apologies for the later report this morning. A lot is going on!

Snow has been falling since yesterday and there is a lot of activity as more of Naeba opens. There have been spells of clearer conditions with the snow coming back.

From today the Prince Number 2 Gondola is moving as well as the Takenokodaira pair lift up there in the top area of Naeba. You can also ski down from that area back to base.

Naeba is getting rather busy now.

We can expect some sun tomorrow before a return to snowy conditions in the first half of the week.
