Furano Now!

Saturday 19th March 2016, 8:01am
Weather conditions: Overcast
New snowfall: 0cm
Snow depth: 170cm
Welcome to the weekend. It is a warm Saturday morning and the spring melt around the village continues with snow receeding at a rapid rate. It hasn't frozen at village level overnight. The sun is not around right now, so things are looking a bit grey with the overcast skies. The forecast rain has not arrived yet but it is still predicted. The good news is that temperatures will be much colder from tomorrow with continuous light snow forecast for the next 5 days.   Read more ...
 

Hakuba Now!

Saturday 19th March 2016, 8:38am
Weather conditions: Lots of cloud, fog
New snowfall: 0cm
Snow depth: 115cm
Good morning from Hakuba.

Not the best of mornings really, as unfortunately it is raining... though we were expecting it. As much as anyone tries to convince me that skiing in the rain is fun and you can go real fast etc, it's definitely not my bag! If it is yours though, due to the conditions this morning I would expect less people out there than we would if it were fine and sunny. There's a bit of a wind up there too as well apparently, though it looks like all upper areas are open this morning.

It's really noticeable how much snow has disappeared from base areas over the last run of days. Upper areas still doing ok but lower areas at resorts close to base are struggling - to a greater or lesser degree (for example Hakuba 47 remains fully open down to base).

Better news. It will be getting a bit colder again from tomorrow and we might be lucky enough to see some snow falling though it may be mountain-only rather than down to base. You never know though, especially during this season!

Niseko Now!

Saturday 19th March 2016, 8:40am
Weather conditions: Cloud, fog up top
New snowfall: 0cm
Snow depth: 130cm
Good morning from Niseko.

It was a warm day yesterday, as expected.

And today is going to be warm too - perhaps not quite as... a high of around 7C is expected around base today.

Unfortunately, it's raining at the moment but hopefully it won't last long and we'll be left with just cloudy conditions from around mid-morning.

Looks like fog and poor visibility up top this morning which is preventing all of the top lifts from moving at the start of the day.

It's not the nicest of mornings!

The better still news is that come tomorrow morning there might be some snow falling on the mountain; and there's a bit of snow on the forecast at times into mid week as well. So we might even get to see some new cm.

---

Someone sent a mail into SnowJapan yesterday, directed towards me - from an email address apparently belonging to an accommodation - asking for us to refrain from mentioning the word 'rain' if it was raining this morning. (It's raining this morning). They asked perhaps we could use other cunning words and phrases to describe this less than desirable precipitation (ie. rain). Or perhaps even just ignore it (the rain). It may well have been a joke mail but given past experience I don't think it was. It certainly made me laugh. And at this late stage of the season as well!

And while I'm on the subject of emails and messages, thank you to the people who have sent in mails, comments and words of encouragement - always appreciated. Thank you.

Resort specific lift opening news at time of posting (subject to change during the day):

Niseko Avalanche Report:

Niseko base 6.00am: 3°C, no new snow, light winds, cloudy. Moiwa 838m: 2.8°C, WNW3.1m/s. Annupuri 1000m: snowpack 300cm. Annupuri 1150m: 1°C, SW8m/s, snow surface wet snow. Hirafu Ridgeline: 0°C, light winds from ridge line toward Backbowl, no new snow, snow surface wet snow. Coastal data: Benkei Cape:NNW3m/s. Kamui Cape SW9m/s, 1006hPa, wave 1.1m.

Mountain base visibility is good, however above 800m there is heavy fog and poor visibility. There is no new snow and with warm air flowing into the area, temperatures are above zero at 6am and snow melt will continue throughout the day.

The mountain has changed to spring conditions over the last few days. From observation, except for small scale slabs, the risk of surface avalanches is low. However with rising temperatures the risk of large scale full depth avalanches is increasing. Avoid riding in the valley bottoms. There are many places where wrinkles are below cracks, however the snow pack is still creeping down the slope. Many snowballs are rolling down the mountain, take care not to be taken out by one. The snow is slow and sticky, be careful catching ski. There are many cracks below knolls that are hard to see from above. If you fall in one onto your back it could be serious injury.

All peak gates are expected to be open. Listen to the patrols advice before going out of bounds. Keep an eye on your gear, there have been reports of some going missing. Have a good day.

Grandeco Now!

Saturday 19th March 2016, 8:45am
Weather conditions: Cloud
New snowfall: 0cm
Snow depth: 200cm
Good morning from Grandeco.

The rain has stopped falling this morning and it is just cloudy at this moment.

It's very wet everywhere, roads, parking, stairs but there's no puddles on the courses! Not the best conditions but not too bad conditions to ride in - very slippery snow!

It should remain cloudy this afternoon and temperatures will probably get colder overnight, with some snow due to start falling from tomorrow.

It is not crowded yet today, probably because of the rain forecast, but it will likely get very busy tomorrow.

Get up early if you plan to be here.

Ski resorts around Mt. Bandai are announcing their planned closing dates:

Listel Ski Fantasia - already closed (on 12 March).

Numajiri / Inawashiro resort / Inawashiro and Minero ski resorts - until 21st March

Alts Bandai / Urabandai ski resorts - until 27th March.

Nekoma will be closed between 19th-21th and 26th-28 Apr but these resorts all plan to be open until 5th May ---- but whether they can do that or not will totally depend on the snow levels of course, which are less than usual and less than expected. We'll just have to see how things develop over the coming weeks.   Read more ...
 

Madarao Now!

Saturday 19th March 2016, 8:49am
Weather conditions: Cloud
New snowfall: 0cm
Snow depth: 80cm
Hello from Madarao.

Sadly we had to endure some rain last night - it's just cloudy right now as I type this but rain might be falling this morning from time to time. It's keeping mild at the moment but we're hoping to see a drop in temps by tomorrow, or from tomorrow... maybe even a dusting of snow perhaps. There's more snow mid to late week on the forecast which is interesting.

Fireworks at Madarao tonight after the nighta.

Have a good one.

Nozawa Onsen Now!

Saturday 19th March 2016, 8:56am
Weather conditions: Cloud, bit of blue sky
New snowfall: 0cm
Snow depth: 30cm
Morning from Nozawa.

It was raining when I got up earlier on but right now it's just cloudy and in fact there's a bit of sun poking through the clouds. The forecast for the region is cloud/rain for the morning and just cloud for the afternoon with a high temperature of around 11 degrees here at base.

A bit colder temperatures are due tomorrow and some forecasts are even showing some light snowfall for the upper areas of the mountain. And perhaps down to base around Wednesday-Thursday in the coming week. Keep an eye on that one to see how it develops.

With the warmth and rain, lower courses have taken more hits in recent days. The resort has said that nighta planned for today, tomorrow and next Saturday has been cancelled.

Course cover on the upper 2/3 of the mountain remains complete and is not a problem at all. Just need to head up high, which most of you probably would be doing anyway!

Naeba Now!

Saturday 19th March 2016, 8:57am
Weather conditions: There's a fair amount of high level cloud out there today.
New snowfall: 0cm
Snow depth: 120cm
Good morning from Naeba everybody.

Well rain was predicted for today and a small amount has fallen however it looks at the moment like we may get lucky and nowhere near as much rain as was predicted will actually end up falling.

Temperatures are spring like warm out there at the moment and caution should currently be exercised due to the thin snow pack in some areas. The main slopes are still good to ride on but if you go too far off the sides expect to be grass skiing.

The weather going on is supposed to be rain today turning to snow by tomorrow then after that we should have light snow with some occasional rain mixed in all the way until Thursday.

Tonight there's a big fireworks event as part of Naeba Snow Festival. At 20:15 there will be a torchlight ski procession and at 20:20 they will let off the biggest fireworks display of the season.

Yuzawa Now!

Saturday 19th March 2016, 9:01am
Weather conditions: Cloud
New snowfall: 0cm
Snow depth: 80cm
Morning from Yuzawa.

I heard a bit of rain falling on the roof late last night and it was drizzly earlier on but right now it's just cloudy - the rain clouds currently seem to be doing their thing just to the north of us, hopefully they may stay there! The forecast though does warm of rain on and off for the day

At 9am this morning it is 9 degrees but it's not forecast to warm up much more than that.

Tomorrow there's a still a chance of light rain at times according to the local forecast, though less than today. We might be lucky to avoid it completely. It will not be as warm as well with temperatures generally dipping from tomorrow.

Resorts are playing around with snow on lower areas to try and keep things going especially for this weekend - it's a 3-day weekend with Monday being a national holiday. I don't have any official news yet, but I would imagine after that we'll be hearing about some places closing next week.

Higher up there's still plenty of snow to play in and those resorts will be open for quite a while yet of course. It will be interesting to see how long they can last this season, for example Kagura plans to go right through until the end of May (and in a normal season usually is able to).

---

Resort official snow depths (Saturday 19th March 2016) and any specific news at time of writing:

There are now lots of patches of ground on view showing through now on some lower slopes around town. Some more than others. Some courses/areas at resorts are now closed due to the snow situation. If you are planning on visiting, I recommended that you check with the individual resorts for their up-to-date details. You can fine their websites from the links below.

Zao Now!

Saturday 19th March 2016, 9:54am
Weather conditions: Cloudy
New snowfall: 0cm
Snow depth: 115cm
Morning from Zao.

Rain last night I'm afraid. Not sure how long it lasted but for the moment we just have clouds above but the roads are wet. The rain clouds aren't far away though and we might get some this morning in particular. We may also avoid it completely which would be best of course.

It's a warm morning. Just cloudy. Not much of a wind. If the rain holds off, it should be nice to be out on the mountain for some spring riding.

That's about it really for today.

There's actually some snow forecast for early week with the colder conditions that are expected. Whether it would be anything more than a thin layer or not, we'll just have to wait and see.

Minakami Now!

Saturday 19th March 2016, 10:12am
Weather conditions: Slightly cloudy
New snowfall: 0cm
Snow depth: 130cm
Some good news on the weather front here with rain forecast for last night and this morning turning out to be a non-event. It looks as though a small amount of rain did fall overnight but despite a few clouds around this morning, the weather looks pretty good.

Temps are still well above where we'd like them but that looks set to change from sometime this afternoon or early evening.

Snow showers are on the forecast for tomorrow and are set to persist for the duration of the forecast (Thursday). Hopefully some comes through in decent size.

Okutone Snow Park joined the 'closed for the season' list as of yesterday. It's sad to see places closing earlier than planned, but nothing you can do when there's just not enough snow.

Shiga Kogen Now!

Saturday 19th March 2016, 10:33am
Weather conditions: Cloudy
New snowfall: 0cm
Snow depth: 90cm
Good morning from Shiga Kogen.

It's a bit wet this morning and raining still as I write this report. Sadly, not been able to avoid it but fingers crossed that it won't last long and that we might even get some snow later on if it gets cold enough... it's pretty mild at the moment.

Still there is actually some snowfall on some forecasts for around mid-week, so maybe we will get some more yet.

Resorts have been announcing their planned closing dates and information on what lifts should be open for the rest of the season. As you can see below, some areas are planning to be open right through until 8th May. I must say it seems rather ambitious given the amount of snow we have, but I'm pretty sure that they will doing their best to remain open as long as possible.

Appi Kogen Now!

Saturday 19th March 2016, 10:55am
Weather conditions: Cloudy
New snowfall: 0cm
Snow depth: 120cm
Well its a rainy Saturday morning here at Appi.

Currently cloudy skies, a little drizzle and a temp outside my front door of +3. It’s definitely not going to be a fun day out there. We’ve also lost 10cm of snow from the base level because of the warmer temperatures. the rain should abate this afternoon and the temperature will start dropping overnight putting us firmly in the minus territory tomorrow. We may even see some very light snow showers too.

While the drop in temperature is good news it will make most of the runs in the morning nice and icy to say the least. As is usual with Spring skiing everywhere conditions on the slopes will range from good to unpleasant depending on what time you’re out there and where you are skiing. At least we’ll get 4 or 5 days on lower temperatures making it feel like a real ski resort.

Myoko Now!

Saturday 19th March 2016, 11:34am
Weather conditions: Pretty gray out there; tut, tut, it looks like rain
New snowfall: 0cm
Snow depth: 145cm
We didn't get very serious rain, and the roads are dry today. Nice. It was supposed to rain, and I'm glad it's not happening.

The snow has really, really gone down over the past three days or so, and we are seeing this in the reporting from the resorts.

After this season, I think we have to be happy for any day we can get out there.... maybe we should start a pool on closing dates, just to keep things interesting.
