Yuzawa Now!

Wednesday 7th December 2005, 9:08am
Weather conditions: Cloud
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
The expected 15cm last night in reality turned out to be about 5cm on the slopes of resorts in the town and just a sprinkling at town level. If we can believe those forecasting folk, we might get some more snow this afternoon - but it still won't be real "Yukiguni" style snowfall..... and tomorrow looks like it will be a clear fine day and so we will have to be patient a little longer.   Read more ...

Shiga Kogen Now!

Wednesday 7th December 2005, 9:12am
Weather conditions: Cloud, sun
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
The sun is out this morning. Still quite a few clouds around but as I write this the sun is coming in through the window and outside is looking very tempting. We still need more snow though to get more runs open and for the season to really get going.   Read more ...

Niseko Now!

Wednesday 7th December 2005, 9:27am
Weather conditions: Clear
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Last night the temp dropped to -13 in Kutchan and it's still -10 at 9:00am. If you're heading up today bring the sunscreen. Not a cloud in the sky and barely a breath of wind. Days like this are pretty rare in Niseko. It's not going to last though with snow forecast for later tomorrow extending through the weekend. Enjoy the sun whilst it lasts!   Read more ...

Hakuba Now!

Wednesday 7th December 2005, 9:44am
Weather conditions: Broken cloud and sunshine
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
The clouds have broken and the sun is shining down on the slopes today. The runs on Happo are soft groomed and there are some un-groomed runs out there with what is becoming lots of tracks back down them to the gondola. The forecast is for more snow from the afternoon and through the evening so this morning is a great chance to get some great turns in great snow & visability. There is no wind to speak of and the temps are hanging around the freezing level. Got to get out there and check it out!   Read more ...

Nozawa Onsen Now!

Wednesday 7th December 2005, 10:38am
Weather conditions: Still, thick, low clouds with sunny breaks.
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Occassional thick white-outs at Yamabiko, Karasawa, Hikage and various other locations around the mountains and village today. White, still, thick, heavy, low clouds are the reason. The sun breaks through large gaps in the randomly drifting low clouds providing warmth and excellent skiing conditions for more than half the time. It seems the new 10cm of snowfall was mainly on the top regions as Hikage is the same depth as the day before. It remains sunny up high at Yamabiko as the low clouds are drifting below this higher level.   Read more ...
