Hakuba Now!

Thursday 15th January 2004, 7:51am
Weather conditions: Clearing up post storm, but snow still forecast. Cloudy higher up
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Another centimeter or so fell overnight, but the sky has largely cleared giving us a cold, calm morning with a pinkish sky. Happo is visible up to the upper gondola station and a tinge of blue can be seen above the range. Snow is still forecast though, and past experience says it can turn up in no time.

We're heading out of the valley this morning, but we'll be back soon. Happy turns!   Read more ...

Nozawa Onsen Now!

Weather conditions: Cloud, Snow
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
It's starting to snow right now and it's also a little windy again today. But Nagasaka Gondola is operating and I guess that Hikage Gondola is also going to operate. We didn't get very much new snow, about 15cm since yesterday morning.

Today is the day of the Fire Festival! It's going to be a great event and if you can make it, come to Nozawa tonight! It starts around 7 p.m.

Yuzawa Now!

Thursday 15th January 2004, 9:02am
Weather conditions: Snow and strong winds
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Many of the resorts had lift restrictions yesterday (or were completely closed) due to the strong winds. It looks like today might be similar - GALA will be closed and many other resorts will be closing at least some of their lift operations.

About 20cm more since yesterday afternoon fallen and its still coming down this morning. It's also very windy and very poor visibility. The forecast also reckons that we'll be getting another 20-40cm before tomorrow morning so once these winds and storms clear the slopes will be in excellent condition.

Niseko Now!

Thursday 15th January 2004, 10:01am
Weather conditions: Wind
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Only centre 4 on Alpen and Kogen No 1 and 4 are moving due to high winds. The wind has subsided, but still remains strong enough to disrupt lift operation. Lots of wind blown snow, creating densley packed deposits and unstable conditions. More snow forecast for the coming few days, with the wind expected to die down.   Read more ...

Shiga Kogen Now!

Thursday 15th January 2004, 11:21am
Weather conditions: Snow, strong winds
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
The winds aren't as strong today, but still with us - and it's still snowing. Another 15-20cm or so since yesterday and coming down as I write. It's another very cold one with the winds making it seem colder than it actually is. Some lifts closed still waiting for the winds to die down.   Read more ...
