Yuzawa Now!

Weather conditions: Cloud
New snowfall: 0cm
Snow depth: 0cm
Things are continuing to cool down here with jackets out of the wardrobe and heaters turned on at times.

The autumn colours this year have been really spectacular and while there's still a lot of colour when the sun shines around town, higher up it's looking more and more like winter is approaching.

Mount Naeba has experienced the first snowfall of the season this week, apparently three days earlier than last year.

It's a while before we start seeing snowfall proper of course, but there's only 3 weeks now before Kagura plans to open... Saturday 21st November is the plan!

Niseko Now!

Weather conditions: Cloudy
New snowfall: 2cm
Snow depth: 0cm
Good morning from Hirafu.

Since my last report we have had a few small amounts of snow falling in the village, enough for me to add another 1-2cm to the tally including the sprinkling that we have had overnight.

Evenings in particulary are getting rather cold now with temperatures hanging around 0 degrees overnight.

More snow is expected tonight, though after the weekend it does look like it will be getting a bit warmer again.


Once the lifts start moving - and very possibly before - my report updates will click into 'daily' and once that happens they'll be daily right through until early May. Gambarimasu!

I am told that the gigantic bug on the webcam image below surely means that this season will be 'the best ever'. ;)


Planned opening dates for the Niseko resorts:

Niseko Grand Hirafu: Saturday 21st November
Niseko Annupuri: Saturday 28th November
Niseko Village: Tuesday 1st December
Niseko HANAZONO: Saturday 5th December

Nighta should be starting on Saturday 12th December   Read more ...
