Yuzawa Now!

Monday 25th November 2013, 8:08am
Weather conditions: Cloudy
New snowfall: 0cm
Snow depth: 0cm
Not the smoothest of starts to the season really at Kagura - yesterday the Kagura Gondola was experiencing some problems and was closed until around 11:30am, and today the weather is preventing Kagura from opening at all. Wind is the problem with speeds of up to 25m/s possible - here in the town area early on it is really blowing with some force though it's not raining. It is mild though - it was mild overnight, not going below 10C with a high of about 14C likely later on. So it doesn't feel particularly winter like this morning.

Still looking like rain later on and through tomorrow, with a good chance of snow mid to late week.

(Strong winds may well persist tomorrow as well so there's a good chance that Kagura won't be able to open again. If you plan on going, best to check with the resort early on).   Read more ...

Morning from Hakuba and this morning it's fairly mild at about 5C as of 9am, cloudy and grey. Rain is due later on today along with stronger winds, but it is looking like snow is on the way and some potentially decent falls on the mountains.

Niseko Now!

Weather conditions: Cloud
New snowfall: 0cm
Snow depth: 20cm
Strong winds and rain today, but hopefully it will be all about snow starting from tomorrow as temperatures dip down to where we want them to be. A few days of snowfall is lined up and so I hope to bring some good news on that very soon! It will be good to see a cover of snow once again and for the season to begin.   Read more ...
