Weather conditions: Scattered low cloud
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
There was a dusting of snow to fairly low levels last night but not enough to settle in the village. Another band of precipitation will move through today but will probably be sleet at village level with snow higher up. The low pressure system has moved up through Eastern Hokkaido overnight and heavy precipitation fell on that side of the island with good snowfalls on higher ground. As the system moves to the North the cold air will really start moving in and tomorrow will see temps barely reach freezing at village level and hopefully good snowfalls will develop. The snowfalls are expected to continue through the weekend. Fingers crossed a lift or two will be able to open!   Read more ...

After that gloomy start yesterday, things picked up in the daytime only to get cloudy and wet again later on in the day.

This morning it is sunny from early on with the temperature currently at around 7 degrees and not likely to rise about 10 during the day.

While there is no snow in sight right now, forecasts have us down for snow starting perhaps as early as tonight and tomorrow with more up top during the week....

Everyone is hoping for the first snow down to town level as well over the next few days.    Read more ...

Snow - the real kind - is on it's way!

While it is a fine morning here in Naeba, things seem likely to change as the day progresses with snow forecast for tonight and into tomorrow and indeed beyond that on and off until the end of the week. Hopefully we might get enough for Kagura to be able to open as planned on Saturday.

We'll keep you posted!   Read more ...

Shiga Kogen Now!

Weather conditions: Cloud
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Morning folks - we have all been very patient but it looks like we might not have to wait much longer before we get the first real decent snowfall of the season.

Route 292 connecting Shiga Kogen with Gunma Prefecture is now officially closed for the season (until 22nd April 09) which is always a good sign. Better still is the forecast... while this morning the weather has been generally fine, clouds are rolling in and snow is forecast for later today and then more, especially tomorrow night, and beyond. Probably not enough for lifts to start moving but definitely a good start.

Regular updates from now on... stay tuned!   Read more ...
