Kagura Trails

Kagura Ski Resort is divided into three areas, Kagura, Tashiro and Mitsumata. Due to Kagura’s high altitude (1,800m), the resort receives an abundant amount of light dry powder snow and has the longest ski season in Japan. The on-piste terrain offers plenty of trails for beginners and intermediates, and powder lovers will enjoy the ungroomed trails and tree runs which are easily accessed from the lifts. Some of Japan’s most exciting backcountry terrain is also accessible from the top of Kagura. English speaking backcountry guides and English backcountry permission forms are available at the resort. Kagura Ski Resort is connected to Naeba Ski Resort via the world’s longest gondola, the Dragondola, and resort area shuttle buses.
