Niseko Now!

Wednesday 7th January 2004, 8:29am
Weather conditions: Clear
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Only a very light sprinkling of snow in the village last night with clear blue skies. Temperatures are still very cold, with only the very peak of the mountain clouded over. The groomed runs are immaculate, offering the best turns first thing in the morning. Colder temperatures are expected over the next few days.   Read more ...

Yuzawa Now!

Wednesday 7th January 2004, 8:54am
Weather conditions: Sun
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
A fine sunny, but very icy morning in Yuzawa. Temperatures early on down below zero but set to rise during the daytime. No new snowfall overnight.

Yesterday, Yuzawa Now took a trip out to the Kandatsu Kogen resort in the town. Conditions were surprisingly decent - the 15cm or so of yesterday morning made a big difference. Still not enough snow to open up the steepest Orion course.

Tomorrow looks promising, with snowfall forecast throughout the day. Fingers crossed.   Read more ...

Nozawa Onsen Now!

Wednesday 7th January 2004, 9:03am
Weather conditions: Sun
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Yesterday was a nearly perfect day, the powder at Yamabiko just felt so good. With all the crowds gone there was pow left until late in the afternoon.

No new snow over night but a cold and sunny day.

Today is the first "nikoniko" Wednesday. If you purchase a 1,2 or 3 day ticket you get one for free to use on a weekday.   Read more ...

Shiga Kogen Now!

Wednesday 7th January 2004, 9:14am
Weather conditions: Sun
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
A really cold morning, temperatures way down lower than 10 degrees out there. So need to wrap up well.

It's also a fantastic blue-sky beautiful morning - views from the top today will be spectacular. No new snow overnight to add to the enjoyment but conditions continue to hold up fairly well.

Look out for snow tomorrow (so we're told) :)   Read more ...

Hakuba Now!

Wednesday 7th January 2004, 16:54pm
Weather conditions: Clear, with snow on the way
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
After a very cold, clear night with a near-full moon bathing the mountains in blue light, it has been a crisp and very clear day today.

At 47, the slopes were riding hard and extremely fast with great views down to the village. The upper runs are in good condition, but the run to the bottom is as icy as ever and has the added challenge of what looks like the remnants of a boarder-cross run. The 47 pipe closes for maintenance tomorrow, I believe.

Happo hosted a half-pipe competition today, and the pipe should be open to the public from tomorrow. Lots of moguls can be seen on the upper runs from a long way away.

It's just starting to cloud over now, and snow is forecast for tonight and tomorrow.   Read more ...
