Hakuba Now!

Weather conditions: Overcast and foggy
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Overcast and foggy this morning with chance of snow throughout the day. Temperatures are still warm, staying around 0 deg. in the valley and -1 ~ -2 up on top of the resorts.

The word from the top of Goryu is that it is foggy with poor visibility. For those of you who are staying through Friday or coming up this weekend, conditions should shape up nicely as the temps will be dropping back down and more snow expected!

Nozawa Onsen Now!

Wednesday 1st February 2006, 9:49am
Weather conditions: Cloudy
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Gloomy with low clouds shrouding all the peaks. Snow fell yesterday afternoon but not a great deal. The snow quality is sticky (again) and if it snows again this afternoon it should make it possible to glide like velvet as it did yesterday.   Read more ...

Shiga Kogen Now!

Weather conditions: Cloud, light snow at times
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
The mild conditions continue with it around 0 as this is being written. As with some of the other areas in the region, we have some fairly strong winds blowing around this morning and this is affecting the operations of the resorts - with a few lifts over at Okushiga and Yakebitaiyama not moving as they wait for the winds to die down.

With the mild weather of the last few days conditions are not perfect and so we're all hoping for a good topup of fresh snow sometime soon - it looks like some decent snowfall might be with us tonight and into tomorrow with more forecast for over the weekend.   Read more ...

Weather conditions: Rain, cloud
New snowfall: --

Yesterday turned out to be a fine day but it was a pretty cold one as well.

This morning has started very grey and an on and off rainy one at town level (with apparently some snow higher up) and we have rain forecast pretty much for the whole day today. There's a chance that it might turn into snow later on in the day.... fingers crossed for that! Temperatures are set to maybe rise to around +9 degrees in the early afternoon though before dropping again later on in the evening.

In the meantime though there are some fairly strong winds again high up, with GALA announcing that they will not be opening because of the wind and only the Mistumata area of Kagura opening up.

Looking ahead it seems we have a chance of some snow early tomorrow and on Friday, with both Saturday and Sunday looking like they might be just cloudy.   Read more ...
