More fine weather this morning and also warmer than yesterday. Temperatures this lunchtime are in double figures outside and it feels very much like spring again. Good weather is still forecast for the rest of the Golden Week period so a good ending to the season for most resorts in Shiga Kogen.

Naeba Now!

Thursday 30th April 2009, 14:55pm
Weather conditions: Sun
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
The last few days has seen the sun return with blue (hazy) skies and warm temperatures. The snow has almost totally disappeared from the bottom slopes of Naeba now - always surprising just how fast it goes towards the end of the season. The snow is getting pretty thin up there on the Daishamen course as well. It is a warm 15 degrees in Naeba this afternoon and even 10 degrees up on the top of the mountain.

Over at Kagura it's 6 degrees and the sun shining down on the slopes there too.

Weather for tomorrow and the rest of the Golden Week holiday? Looks like it is generally going to be more of the same with lots of sun and warm temperatures.   Read more ...
