Nozawa Onsen Now!

Thursday 22nd January 2004, 8:04am
Weather conditions: Cloud, Fog
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
It's foggy right now in the village and on the lower slopes of the ski area, but it looks like the fog is going to lift pretty soon (I can already see a small stretch of blue skies, so hopefully it's going to be a nice day).We didn't get any new snow over night, but yesterday the conditions were perfect, especially at Yamabiko slopes.

Today is the last day that Kandahar west course is open in January (remember, skiers only!). I skied down there again yesterday, but the conditions were the same as on Monday: the slope was quite hard and icy.

Niseko Now!

Weather conditions: Cloudy
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
No new snow overnight. Yesterdays poor visibility has given way to flat light and overcast skies. Temperatures remain mild with hardly any wind. The groomed runs are in excellent condition, with the best turns on the higher runs.



Temperatures are dropping in the village and on the mountain. Wind conditions are still mild, but snow has begun to fall. Low clouds have moved in over the mountain and visibility is poor. The groomers are still fast and fun and are the pick of the evening.    Read more ...

Yesterday we said "snow coming tomorrow" - well, it's not here yet but due to arrive sometime today (tonight?!) and with it colder temperatures. It's colder than it has been the last few days already, but not much else to report this morning, just waiting for the snow.    Read more ...

Half-price tickets and ski-jumping today!

It's cold and overcast at the moment and the wind is starting to whip up, causing disruptions to the Tsugaike gondola. Further up the valley it still looks pretty clear on the Cortina cam, so the big dump we're expecting is yet to appear, but the temps are down and all forecasts point to it coming. We're looking at a stellar weekend for powder hounds.

There are a few groggy heads in town this morning after a fine show from the Zion Hifi at 902. Respect to the man Bonz and a big up to the Hotaka Massiv! Check them out next time on Jan 31 at the Bubble-era indoor pool (you've gotta see it!) at Omoshiro. Make a date...don't be late...ya bound t'appreciate!   Read more ...

Only a few cm of new snow overnight, and earlier this morning the weather was very changeable. Light snow > cloud > sun > light snow > sun....

At present clouds have moved in more than before and the promised snowfall looks like it might be on it's way. Temperatures are down on the right side of zero.

Some new pics of Ishiuchi Maruyama, Maiko and Joetsu Kokusai taken this morning have been posted below.   Read more ...
