Myoko Now!

Tuesday 4th December 2007, 2:05am
Weather conditions: blizzard
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Heavy snows have been blowing on all sides of Myoko since this afternoon. Daytime temps have been fairly high but steadily dropping every day now. Akakura and Suginohara are now nearly waist-depth and rising with heavy winds on the Akakura side. A nice steady pile is building on Pine Valley and Madarao as the winds are more breezy than blustery.   Read more ...
 

Niseko Now!

Tuesday 4th December 2007, 8:06am
Weather conditions: cloudy
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
We have passing low fronts going through the area with winds coming from the the north west today and a probable temperature of -5/0 and cooler with wind chill. Occasional snows start to fill in some of those old tracks.

Skiing around the mountain is slowly opening up more and more but beware of those terrain traps off piste that I wrote about yesterday: trees, snow covered branches, rocks, holes, and so on.

Yuzawa Now!

Tuesday 4th December 2007, 8:49am
Weather conditions: Cloud, light rain/sleet
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
A tiny sprinkling of wet snow this morning at town level and spots of rain falling at the moment. But we have snow forecast for today and tomorrow and apparently snow is currently falling up in the Kagura area. A cold start to the day and it probably won't be warming up much either with tomorrow being colder, struggling to rise about 0.

Hope to bring you more snowy news tomorrow morning!   Read more ...
 

Naeba Now!

Tuesday 4th December 2007, 9:07am
Weather conditions: Snow, cloud
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Some snow to report this morning - not much, but enough to cover all that brown that was on show on the lower slopes yesterday.... perhaps 5-10cm or so on the mountainside, less in the village. It is snowing at the moment - fairly big flakes coming down slowly - and snow is forecast for the rest of today until tomorrow evening, so hoping that we'll get a decent amount of cm falling.

Unsurprisingly it is colder than it has been of late with it around -1 at the time of writing.   Read more ...
 

Nozawa Onsen Now!

Tuesday 4th December 2007, 9:21am
Weather conditions: Light snow, cloud
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Some fresh snow to report this morning in Nozawa... just a bit down in the village but some snow showing on the trees higher up the mountain. It's holding off at the moment this morning down here but snow is lined up for most of today and also tomorrow with the temperatures keeping low hovering around freezing in the village, so we can hopefully expect some cm on the slopes over the next few days.   Read more ...
 

Shiga Kogen Now!

Weather conditions: Snow, cloud
New snowfall: --

After a generally fine weekend, temperatures dropped yesterday and we have had some fresh snow here in Shiga Kogen this morning and the roads are once again covered in snow. It's a fairly cold morning, down to -4 on the thermometer and we are due for snow through today and into tomorrow. Let it snow!   Read more ...

Weather conditions: Light Snow, snowfall increasing since this morning
New snowfall: --

Temperature drop last night left a dusting in the valley and 25 cm of fresh up top. Snowing heavier in the valley now so should be consistent powder up there, dress warm and enjoy!

Furano Now!

Tuesday 4th December 2007, 11:19am
Weather conditions: Bright sunshine at the moment and not a cloud in the sky. It's a beautiful bluebird day.
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
A light dusting of snow overnight was the only addition of fresh snow. This morning the skies are clear and it's a beautiful bright bluebird day. A new storm front is expected later this afternoon bringing more snow.

During the evening the mountain is illuminated. It looks like they are making a significant amount of snow to ensure all the terrain traps are covered in time for opening the resort fully in a few weeks. Specifically some runs on the Furano Zone.   Read more ...
