Nozawa Onsen Now!

Friday 23rd January 2004, 8:02am
Weather conditions: Fog, Snow
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
It started snowing last night and it's still snowing now, so the conditions should be really nice today. Even yesterday, with no new snowfall overnight, there was some virgin snow left (especially off-piste under Yamabiko chair lift and on Utopia slope, the latter of which has not been groomed since the weekend)
Right now it's very foggy, especially in the lower parts of the ski area. Visibility is slightly better in the upper area. It's very cold today, temperatures ranging from -5 to -10.

Weather conditions: Snow

Snow! About 20+ cm overnight and it's falling hard as I write. Only slight winds though, so conditions out there won't be too bad and the snow should be real good. It's a cold one this morning. If the snow continues as it is forecast to for the rest of the day, we should have excellent conditions for the weekend.   Read more ...

Half-price tickets and superdeep powder today!

The snow started coming down yesterday evening and we've had around 50-60cm so far at village level.

Winds were relatively mild at Happo where there were no lift disruptions. It wasn't difficult to find untracked thigh-deep powder all over the mountain. Thanks to the lack of wind, visibility wasn't too bad, except when you turn sharply and spray yourself in the face.

There's no sign of the snow stopping, so we're in for a bumper weekend. Bring your snorkel!   Read more ...

Niseko Now!

Friday 23rd January 2004, 20:19pm
Weather conditions: Sunshine
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Last night's much needed snow stopped as quickly as it came, providing only 10cm of fresh powder. Skies overhead were blue all day, and despite cold temperatures, the sunshine was strong.

Beautiful views, but resort powder has all but disappeared. Conditions this evening are super fast. Helmets and sharp edges recommended!   Read more ...
