Early on, just the No 5 quad lift operating, other lifts depending on the weather.

GALA Yuzawa seems to be unaffected today and is open as normal.

Shiga Kogen Now!

Wednesday 15th April 2009, 9:08am
Weather conditions: Cloud, light rain in places
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Last night we were had to put up with rain falling high up here even in Shiga Kogen which hasn't helped the snow conditions on the hills. The rain is holding off in places now (though still light rain falling in the northern parts of the region) and generally a lot of cloud and foggy conditions - so poor visibility this morning in places and not the best snow.... it won't be busy out there this morning that's for sure!

Here's what lifts are moving today:

Mammoth - 2 lifts
Ichinose Family - 2 lifts
Ichinose Diamond - 1 lift
Okushiga Kogen - 2 lifts
Kumanoyu - 3 lifts
Yokoteyama - 6 lifts

Nozawa Onsen Now!

Wednesday 15th April 2009, 9:11am
Weather conditions: Rain.
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
It is a rainy start to the day here in Nozawa. Rain fell heavily last night and as such the base depths are reduced to 175cm at Yamabiko and 80cm at Uenotaira. The visibility is poor and a North-westerly of 25km/h is blowing. The temperature on the mountain is 4C.

Light rain and snow is expected to fall high on the mountain today and this pattern should continue through until Friday morning, after which it will begin to clear. Saturday will be a warm and sunny day.

The Nagasaka Gondola and the Yamabiko 1 and 2 quad lifts are operating today.   Read more ...

Naeba Now!

Wednesday 15th April 2009, 9:34am
Weather conditions: Rain, cloud
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
6 degrees in Naeba this morning and unfortunately it is raining. Due to windy conditions up top the resort is only operating the No5 quad lift at the moment, though if conditions improve the usual weekday lifts (as yesterday) may start moving. Limited operations at both Tashiro and Mitsumata as well today due to the wind, also not escaping the rain. Hopefully that will ease off by this evening with just cloud forecast for tomorrow.

Planned closing dates for Naeba and Kagura:

Naeba: May 6th
Tashiro area of Kagura: May 6th
Kagura Mitsumata (via Mitsumata Ropeway): May 24th

We will continue to make updates to this Naeba Now! page at least a few times a week, but from now on until the end of the season at Kagura the daily reporting from the Yuzawa area of Niigata will move over to the Yuzawa Now! report section, so remember to check out that page as well for the latest.   Read more ...
