Good morning from Naeba and since last week we have enjoyed lots of sunshine and warm conditions... with snow very quickly melting away.

And here's what Naeba plans to have open from tomorrow until Wednesday 6th May, which will be the last day of the Naeba season.

- Number 2 Gondola (8:30am until 4pm)
- Takenokodaira Romance lift (8:45am until 4pm)
- Daishamen Romance lift (8:45am until 3:45pm)

Still, almost all of the Kagura areas remain open as normal. The Dragondola connecting Naeba with Tashiro is not open and the downhill course at Mitsumata (back down to the car park) is also closed for the season... you need to get the Ropeway back down at Mitsumata.

Basically - a bit of terrain open at Naeba and a lot of it open at Kagura. Expect Kagura to be especially popular over this Golden Week period - and early start is advised if you don't want a long walk from the car to the Ropeway and/or a wait for the Ropeway itself.

Official Kagura snow depth is at the time of writing on 290cm and 120cm at Naeba.

Naeba:
A small upper part of Naeba will be open from Saturday 2nd May until Wednesday 6th May.

Kagura:
The Tashiro area will be open daily until May 6th.
The main Kagura area, via Mitsumata Ropeaway, will be open daily right through until May 31st.

This Naeba Now report will now be updated once a week until the end of the season.
