Naeba Powder Weekend

Next Trip: Feb 2, 2024


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.

This year is the 60th anniversary of the resort and they are running a fireworks event on the night of our trip. There is also night skiing available under the spotlights until 20:45pm when the fireworks show starts.

Connected to Naeba via the massive Dragondola, 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.

Looking forward to the trip!

The trip to Naeba was an incredible experience. The snow resort was great, and I had a blast snowboarding on the mountain. I particularly enjoyed the variety of runs available for all levels of experience. What made the trip even more special was the group of people I met on the trip. It was fun to make new friends and hang out with them at night after a long day on the slopes. We all gathered together to watch the amazing fireworks display, which was truly mesmerizing.
