  • Kagura Ski Resort is high elevation snow is good and is my favorite ski resort. However cancelled due to high winds and lift so please mind in windy weather. It is a ski area from beginner advanced until everyone can enjoy. Beginners little hard down the gondola line, take the ski lifts, gondola course views at the summit station. The expert 5 Kagura can romance lift top. I came from mitsumata Kagura-Tashiro-are enjoying a day at the Naeba ski resort area. However, Tashiro-note Naeba Ropeways 'dragondola' tend to bus stop by a strong wind. Accommodation (please refer to inspect travel site TripAdvisor. ) Is extremely important to stay Inn of mitsumata ropeway before if I normally stay. Please carefully which are of good quality and skiwear rental accommodation. Discount lift tickets available, without the need for your own ski equipment rentals available. Maeda from veteran skier skiing culture talk to stay near the Kagura gondola mountaintop station "Wadagoya", and is fun to talk such as ski areas around Japan and overseas ski resort. In the morning we Skate it (fast track), I feel the luxury. Car access to the ski areas is useful, but if you're using the train from Tokyo station on the Joetsu Shinkansen from echigo-Yuzawa station (1 hour 30 minutes) echigo-Yuzawa station East exit bus using (check the time only in the morning) mitsumata bus stop bus stop (about 30 minutes) mitsumata accommodation area arrival is. Ask accommodation to stay because there may also pick-up from echigo-Yuzawa station. Last season with enough snow for snow is mid-January, Kagura Ski Resort was packed. It is the one season firmly wanted it snows.

  • Kagura is the most "cool" in Japan, the altitude difference between the peak and the bottom station 1500 meters. A large number of challenging slopes and trails for confident skiers.

  • Highest elevation in the echigo-Yuzawa area away from the city center, you can expect both quantity and quality of snow. In the popular ski resort book now, just can't help missing many regulars and snow aim a higher threshold for beginners. Good relaxing if you want goes from Tashiro ski area.

  • From Yuzawa interchange near and is firmly snow removal distance from the ski slopes, comfortable. Enjoy the many courses. So just lift off of the slope is steep and narrow places some beginners little attention is required.

  • Visit 12/2015. Decided to go because it was the only ski area open at this time in this area. Ended up going on the mitsumata station from the gondola stabilized slip a little stabilized lift stabilized Skate a little stabilized gondola stabilized Skate a little stabilized slopes with good snow, noritsugu lifts and took more than an hour,. You should not go to absolute beginners. It should be entered at the very least, Tashiro station. The snow praise good with excellent powder.
