Naeba Now!

Monday 28th November 2011, 9:08am
Weather conditions: Cloud
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Well that was the weekend and for the most part good weather and clear conditions - no new snow falling from the sky. Kagura is keeping the main Kagura quad lift operating daily now and the pair lift just on the weekend. Or that is the plan for now with the current snow conditions.

The natural snow has all gone from the lower slopes of Naeba now though are increasingly large mini mountains of man-made snow on the one lower slope that they hope to open on 10th December. If we are lucky it will be helped with natural snow - or even not be necessary - but that is all up to Mother Nature.

This morning is mild here. It might even get to around 10 degrees at the base here, so not feeling very winter-like really. It will be at least Thursday before things get cold again and there's really not much sign of snow for the coming week I'm afraid.   Read more ...

Furano Now!

Monday 28th November 2011, 10:15am
Weather conditions: Sunny & warm
New snowfall: 0cm
Snow depth: 60cm
It is a glorious day in terms of the sun being out and mild temperatures. However the beautiful snow took a hammering in yesterdays rain. Conditions on the mountain will be firm in the morning and softening up as the temperatures rise. Furano is forcast to hit a high of 7 today. Sailer Course is now open from the top to bottom of the ropeway.   Read more ...

Shiga Kogen Now!

Monday 28th November 2011, 10:35am
Weather conditions: Cloud
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
After a weekend of decent weather conditions (unless you were wanting snow of course), this morning has started off cloudy - and mild. The snow on the slopes around Shiga Kogen has slowly been retreating and there's just a think layer of snow now left on most slopes. Kumanoyu is still running that one lift but apart from that it's just a waiting game now.

The next few days will be mild and a mix of cloud and sun, with the next snowfall expected around Thursday. The forecast for next weekend is looking promising though with snow expected around Saturday. Fingers crossed!   Read more ...

Niseko Now!

Monday 28th November 2011, 11:14am
Weather conditions: Sunny, Cloudless
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Hirafu and Annupuri saw an expanded lift service yesterday with a couple more lifts running than the previous day. The wet weather reported yesterday morning lasted all day and caused quite sloppy and lumpy conditions which froze overnight giving Niseko quite a moonscape appearance.

Currently the temperature sits above freezing with glorious sunny skies, it would be a perfect Bluebird day for Skiing if it was in March and we had more snow pack. We look set for more of the same tomorrow with Tuesday night seeing a return to low temperatures and Wednesday seeing the reappearance of snow and hopefully the start of winter proper.

Minakami Now!

Monday 28th November 2011, 20:35pm
Weather conditions: Overcast
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
A mild one in Minakami today with relatively warm temperatures all day. The snow line has been creeping down the mountain over the last week but this warm spell has put a stop to that.

Tenjin have a base of about 20cm and could open but are waiting for one more decent snowfall to sort out the odd patchy bit. It is all dependent on the weather but they are good to go at a moment's notice.   Read more ...
