Kagura Ski Resort is a three-in-one resort that covers the areas of Kagura, Mitsumata and Tashiro, not to mention its connection with Naeba Ski Resort via the 5 kilometre long Dragondola. The resort is known for its deep powder due to its high altitude, so it is no surprise that it’s frequented by those chasing fresh quality powder snow.
Enjoy their deep powder in their groomed runs, which come with a gorgeous view of the lake or you can enjoy off-piste, side country and backcountry ski and snowboarding here too.
While at Kagura ski Resort, why not at Wada Goya, a mountain hut up on the hill at the resort? This will ensure you’re the first to get on the snow in the morning.
