Kagura and Naeba Powder Weekend


Overview

The Mt. Naeba Area is made up of five large resorts and with over 30 ski lifts and three gondolas you can easily spend a week here and still not explore the whole area. Mount Naeba offers a huge variety of different runs and courses, with excellent snow conditions throughout the winter season.

Kagura is large and varied resort featuring 23 different lifts and two ropeways. Famous for its early season powder snow, the expansive resort has courses to suit all levels of skiier/boarder including a super long 6000m run! The resort also has some of the most beautiful and panoramic views in the region due to the incredible mountain ranges nearby as well as the several lakes that are scattered throughout.

Had a great powder weekend with TSC as always! Naeba was closed, so only got to experience Kagura but it was good overall. Long queues and wait times at the lift/gondola, but the snow was good. The rentals were decent too. Looking forward to the next trip!

This was my first time on a Tokyo Snow Club trip and enjoyed it! Kagura was an interesting resort, and I got to make friends skiing and snowboarding. The shuttles from the hotel to the ropeway were convenient and it was good to get the lift passes beforehand, to minimize waiting. The rentals through TSC were also very easy. The hotel onsen was very nice, as was the brined apples. I enjoyed the beer pong party in the evening even though I lost :) The 30 minute rest period for dinner on the way back was quicker than I thought, and I had to rush to finish my Tonkatsu. But I now know how to prioritize next time. Overall I enjoyed it, and will attend more events in the future.
