Nozawa Onsen Now!

Thursday 8th January 2004, 8:04am
Weather conditions: Snow
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Winter is back! It started snowing around 10pm yesterday evening and forecast tells us that it should continue to do so throughout the day. Up to 20cm have accumulated in the village and on the slopes. Strong winds might cause the Gondola and Yamabiko lifts to stop.

Best conditions to find today at Challenger as the winds there are usually not that strong.

There are now two snowparks at Uenotaira Gerende, one on the left side of the halfpipe when you get off Hikage Gondola. For the second one take Uenotaira Quad and go down the flat Uenotaira slopes. You'll see it on your right then. Looks pretty nice to me.

The halfpipe will remain closed today.

Hakuba Now!

Weather conditions: Heavy snow for a little longer by the looks
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Heavy snow overnight has given us around 40cm at village level. Around 30cm had gathered by 12am, so I was expecting a little more this morning, but it will no doubt be great on the slopes. It's still coming down pretty heavily now. Slope report to follow.   Read more ...

This is more like it!

About 20-30cm of new snow overnight (good quality stuff too!) and still coming down. A real winters day at last, although temperatures are currently around -3 degrees at town level.

Niseko Now!

Weather conditions: Snow
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
15cm of new snow overnight, but strong winds this morning. At present the gondola has stopped, and both 6C and Hana 3 are moving at snails pace. The top of the mountain is wind blown, with visibility very poor. Best turns to be found around Hana 1 - Strawberries is knee deep. Strong winds and heavy snow falls are expected to continue all day.   Read more ...

Shiga Kogen Now!

Weather conditions: Snow
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
The snow arrived, and with it virtually zero visibility, strong winds and cold temperatures. But we're not complaining! Let it snow all day long and into the night and we'll catch an onsen!

About 30cm so far, more in places, overnight and still coming down now. This will give all the slopes a good topup and make conditions fantastic once the clouds clear.   Read more ...
