New snowfall: --

The roads have a bit of wet on them this morning in the town but there are just a few spots of rain rain at the moment but mainly just cloudy. Up at Naeba though it is a cloudy start with a fair bit of rain - not the best weather for the last day of the season!

Naeba and the Tashiro area of Kagura will be open for the last day of the season today. From tomorrow, the Mitsumata ropeway will be the way to get to Kagura and a shuttle bus will take skiers and snowboarders from the top of the Mitsumata Ropeway to the base of the Kagura Gondola. The Mitsumata Ropeway will be open from 8:30am until 5pm from tomorrow until the end of the season (27th May).   Read more ...

Niseko Now!

Weather conditions: Sunny.

It is the final day of the season here and feels like summer already! Today's maximum is forecast as 15 degrees but I think it will get higher as the sun is out and the hazy sky is trapping the heat. The tops of the mountains are rapidly turning from white to black at the moment and the lower slopes are completely bare of snow now. It is a great time for outdoor activities in this weather as there is no humidity but it is warm enough to walk in a t-shirt. The rivers are all full of melt-water so the rafting must be fast and exciting and there are plenty of people going out on the rivers this week-end, it is one of the busiest times of the year for all the rafting companies in town.

Overall it is a great time of year here in Hokkaido; the winter sports are finished but everyone is looking forward to a summer of mountain biking, surfing, snorkelling, hiking, etc.

It has been another great winter season here with less snow than last year but still plenty to keep everyone happy. The village has seen an increase in places to stay and a rise in the number of guests but still managed to keep its small village atmosphere.

There will be another busy summer of construction in the village with even more accommodation choices available for the coming season - let's hope next season is another great one.   Read more ...
 

Shiga Kogen Now!

Weather conditions: Cloud, rain
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
After some very fine weather over the Golden Week period, today sees some rain and cloudy conditions in Shiga Kogen. It is the last day of the season for many of the remaining resort areas that are open. From tomorrow the places reamining part open will be the resorts in the southern area of Shiga Kogen - Shibutoge, Yokoteyama, Kumanoyu... it's not clear at the moment how long they will remain open.

Well, it has been a season of much less snow than we are used to, but somehow the resorts have managed to remain open for this long. Here's hoping for a return to the snowfalls we are used to next season!   Read more ...
 

Nozawa Onsen Now!

Weather conditions: Cloud, sun
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Well it is the last day of the season and the lifts and courses that were open a week ago are still going strong. The amount of snow up there has quickly changed though with the very warm and fine weather we have had over the Golden Week period.... just 30cm reported up at Yamabiko now on the courses, so it won't be long before the last of the snow melts away.

Some rain this morning unfortunately and rather cloudy, so for those going up for the last time the views won't be up to much.   Read more ...
 

Furano Now!

Weather conditions: Sunny.
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
It is a beautiful sunny morning here and the temperature is above 10 degrees already.

It is closing day for the resort and the end of another great winter of awesome powder snow and fantastic days on the mountain. The weather was a bit changeable and warmer than average but overall plenty of snow and plenty of fun.

It is Golden Week at the moment and Furano is full of tourists enjoying the fine spring weather and soaking up the sun after another long winter. It will be another busy summer with tourists flocking to the area to see the local attractions and enjoy the natural beauty and spectacular scenery.
Let's hope we have a fine summer and another awesome winter season to come.   Read more ...
