Nozawa Onsen Now!

Friday 10th January 2003, 8:20am
Weather conditions: Snow
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
It's snowing slightly right now, but it doesn't look like getting more than a few centimeters. The snow on the upper slopes was perfect yesterday. However, the temperatures are higher today and the snow quality is not so good anymore.

Everybody in the village is busy preparing for the famous and insane fire festival, which will be held on January 15th. This is the craziest festival I have ever witnessed, and if you have the chance to come up don't miss it. Locals are giving away lots of free sake and you can watch people attacking each other with huge torches. The festival starts at around 7:30 pm at a place not far from the village office.    Read more ...

Weather conditions: Cloud, light snow
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
A cloudy morning after just a sprinkling of snow overnight. It is snowing slightly right now, but the snow is very wet and not the preferred variety. Temperatures around 0 degrees and no winds. The forecast is for up to 5-10cm to fall during today - we shall see. Whilst the snow is still generally good, a fresh top-up would be nice...   Read more ...

Niseko Now!

Friday 10th January 2003, 12:10pm
Weather conditions: Sun, cloud
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Again only a little snow overnight, but wind blown snow has created surprisingly good conditions today. Blue skies and slight winds are complementing knee deep turns in Tetsu's, and the run off the peak is fast and bottomless.

Air temperature is still warm, so the snow is heavy and sticky down low. From mid-mountain and above snow conditions are good, and visibility is perfect.   Read more ...
