Yuzawa Now!

Weather conditions: Cloud, blue sky, sun
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
A fair bit of cloud still around this morning but blue sky as well and the sun is out. It's warmer than yesterday as well, around 12 degrees. The forecast is for a sunny afternoon but unfortunately it looks like we won't escape rain over the weekend.... looks like it is going to be wet.

This coming weekend is the last one open for GALA Yuzawa, so come Monday we'll be down to just Naeba and the Kagura resorts open.

Shiga Kogen Now!

Weather conditions: Fine
New snowfall: --

It was colder yesterday with that brief reminder of winter, but this morning the sun is back and we have blue skies once again. It's going to be a fine day. Much warmer to start with (currently +6 degrees outside), though tomorrow it will be back down a bit again and cloudy rainy weather looks likely over the weekend.

Naeba Now!

Friday 24th April 2009, 10:16am
Weather conditions: Cloud, fine
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Decent weather back this morning. Blue skies on view behind some of the cloud that is remaining. Very little wind and currently about +2 degrees at the top of Kagura.

At Naeba there is only a bit of snow remaining on the lower slopes of the resort in front of the hotel - I'd say less than half of the area is snow-covered now down there. You can actually skill ski down to the bottom of the resort (down to the gondola base) but the course down there is getting rather narrow now. Not sure how long they will be able to keep that going....

Anyway, just to refresh Naeba is planning to be open until the last day of the Golden Week national holodays - Wednesday 6th May - while Kagura (via Mitsumata) is hoping to be open until Sunday 24th May.   Read more ...

Nozawa Onsen Now!

Friday 24th April 2009, 10:32am
Weather conditions: Cloud, fine
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
The short blast of winter yesterday was just that - we're back to finer weather this morning and while it is still fairly chilly up top it will rise to around 15 degrees in the village later on in the day. Fine blue skies with some cloud hanging on this morning and some fairly strong winds on the mountain.

There's a chance of rain tomorrow unfortunately, especially later in the day, and also on Sunday - so lets hope the forecast is off there.

Next update on Monday.... have a good weekend.   Read more ...
