Weather conditions: Sun
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
A beautiful blue sky start to the day in the region. Blue sky all around - perfect conditions to be out there and hopefully it won't get too busy. Today, tomorrow and Monday are holidays in Japan and so this weekend will more than likely be more busy than a normal 2 day weekend.

No new snowfall overnight, but conditions remain good. Temperatures today might rise up to about +3 or 4. The forecast is telling us that we might get snow later on today/tonight.   Read more ...

Looks like we're set for the best weekend of the season yet. Blue skies all round, stunning views from up top early on. Good snow conditions. Excellent.

A long weekend until Monday and so expect more crowds than a normal one - but even so it probably won't be too bad at all.

Enjoy the weekend!   Read more ...

Niseko Now!

Weather conditions: Wind and heavy snow
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
High winds and heavy snowfall this morning after a clear and cold night. Visibility is limited, with lifts running at reduced pace. The wind is expected to continue throughout the day, hopefully abating just in time for night skiing. The southernly wind should make for good snow deposits on Hanazono 3, Strawbwerries and Miharashi.   Read more ...

Nozawa Onsen Now!

Weather conditions: Cloud
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Yesterday was one of those days you live for: ungroomed powder until late in the afternoon, sunshine, no winds and cold temperatures. Most of the pow will be gone by now but the grommies are fun too.

It was sunny in the morning but became cloudy about half an hour ago.

A new word on the Kandahar slopes: I met the person in charge the other day and got the following explanation. The east course was not open until now due to lack of snow. And according to the official website it is open from today on! I might not get the chance to check it out today but will keep you updated.
The west course is to be opened from January 19th to 22nd and February 15th to 19th.

Telling from the people walking the streets of Nozawa and the full parking lots we expect a busy long weekend.

After an extremely cold night with temps down to -16 at village level, we had a cold but mainly clear start to the day. Since then however, some major clouds have rolled in and it's now snowing heavily. Blizzards are forecast for this evening.
