Hello there from Naeba where some patches of ground are now on show on the lower slopes, but still remarkably lots of snow around considering the date. With warming temperatures and fine weather mostly forecast, we'll probably quite quickly be seeing more of that.

So yes, fine and warm spring weather conditions this morning with lots of the same on the forecast for the coming week.

Here's what Naeba plans to have open for this coming Saturday and Sunday.

- Number 2 Gondola (8:30am until 4pm on Saturday, 8:00am until 3:30pm on Sunday)
- Takenokodaira Romance lift (8:45am until 4pm on Saturday, 8:15am until 3:45pm on Sunday)

So it will be just the two lifts then (well, one Gondola and one lift) but you should still be able to ski/board right back down to base.

Almost all of the Kagura areas should remain open as normal. The Dragondola connecting Naeba with Tashiro is of course now now open and also the downhill course at Mitsumata (back down to the car park) is now closed for the season... so you need to get the Ropeway back down at Mitsumata.

Official Kagura snow depth is at the time of writing on 310cm and 180cm at Naeba.
