Nozawa Onsen Now!

Sunday 4th January 2004, 7:56am
Weather conditions: Snow
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Yesterday's rain has changed into wet snow a couple of hours ago and the village looks at least a little bit winter-like again.

Temperatures at the Yamabiko area promise quite good powder, so head there as early as possible.

If you take skyline be aware that the bottom part is not groomed anymore and the soil is partly coming through. It would be wise to take the first or second left to the Karasawa slopes.

The crowds should also be gone by today, so no more waiting.   Read more ...

Niseko Now!

Sunday 4th January 2004, 8:16am
Weather conditions: Cloud, occasional sun
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
15-20cm of powder cover this morning, with still wind conditions and cloudy skies overhead. Brief periods of sunshine are providing moments of visibility, but the clearest runs are in amongst the trees. Mid mountain and above offers the lightest powder snow.


Update later:

A huge amount of snow falling at present!
20cm+ has collected over the last two hours, and so much continues to fall that it is difficult to drive a car at present. Prepare your snorkel for tomorrow morning!    Read more ...

Yuzawa Now!

Sunday 4th January 2004, 10:40am
Weather conditions: Light snow > clearing up
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
It was raining yesterday evening but that turned into light snow during the night. Not much new cm of snow on the slopes, but still coming down lightly this morning even at town level. Unfortunately, it looks like the snow clouds are already clearing up, with sun shining in nearby Shiozawa Town at the moment.

Temperatures similar to yesterday.   Read more ...

Shiga Kogen Now!

Sunday 4th January 2004, 12:13pm
Weather conditions: Sun, cloud
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
A bit more snow overnight - still no substantial dumps - but enough to keep the conditions of the slopes decent. The snow clouds have cleared up this morning and currently the sun is showing through the remaining clouds. A good day to be out on the slopes. Most of the New Year crowds (never too busy) will be making their way back now, so this afternoon in particular the slopes shouldn't be busy at all.   Read more ...
