Hakuba Now!

Friday 28th April 2006, 8:36am
Weather conditions: Clear and sunny
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Sunny, blue skies, nobody on the mountian..... does it get any better? Grab your sunscreen, some slidiing apparatus and go to it. It should be an epic spring day out there today.


Sunshine hitting southern slopes has been creating multiple risks, including Size 2 loose avalanches.. Use caution when traversing under southern slopes.

Natural avalanches probable, human-triggered avalanches possible. Be increasingly cautious in steep terrain.   Read more ...

Shiga Kogen Now!

Friday 28th April 2006, 9:40am
Weather conditions: Sun, some cloud
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
It's been a generally fine week with a bit of rain here and there but generally cloudy with the sun making an appearance every now and again.

This morning the sun is out early on and it looks like both today and tomorrow are going to be fine and sunny, with a chance of rain moving in on Sunday. So if you are heading for Shiga Kogen this weekend, Saturday looks like the best bet. There's still quite a lot of snow around and it is taking longer than usual to melt away. Best conditions for skiing and boarding are earlier in the day.

It's still fairly cold with temperatures regularly dipping down below 0 degrees, but when the sun is out they can rise during the day and it can be relatively warm.   Read more ...

It has been a varied week but generally cloudy/sun for the most part the last few days. Today was fine and it looks like tomorrow and Sunday will also be fine weather with sun forecast for both days and temperatures to rise to around 15 degrees.

Nagasaka Gondola
Yamabiko Number 2 quad
Yamabiko quad
Paradise quad
Kokenashi pair lift
Yunomine Pair

There's still a lot of snow up at the top there so if you're on for a bit of spring skiing or boarding there's still fun to be had.
