  1. FYI Today's forecast called for rain up to 850m Rained earlier this morning, but been light snow since at my place (~ 300 m) Just starting to stick on the newly uncovered grass Calling for a freezing level above the top lifts in this area for Thursday and Friday. If they're right, then it's going to rain top to bottom. If they're wrong, then it's on like Donkey Kong Cheers mate, good to know. TB: unlucky today mate...the expert powder zone they talk about on their website, presumably that's the grey trails on the map under the main gondola/skier's left of t
  2. MP: yeah, it's an expensive mistake for me if I go and it's raining though...guess I'll wait on the forecasts another couple of days... TB: judging by the map, Tomamu looks like a wicked resort...think today's the last day they're running all the lifts..
  3. Lads, weather looking potentially good for Thursday/Friday, only concern is the temperatures hovering around freezing...in your experience, does this kind of forecast make for a reasonably safe bet for snow? http://www.snowjapan.com/japan-ski-resorts/hokkaido/akaigawa/kiroro-snow-world/snow-weather-reports
  4. Cheers for the replies. Forecast says there might be a last blast at the end of next week so fingers crossed.
  5. Live in Okinawa, got two weeks from Monday off so can jump on a plane up to Hokkaido without too much notice...any recommendations for scoring the best pow in the next few weeks? Forecast's not looking great around Sapporo and anywhere west of it...was thinking Tomamu or Kamui might be the best bets (looking for somewhere with good slackcountry)? Cheers in advance for any advice.
  6. Hi, had my domestic flight from Kansai to Chitose cancelled last Saturday due to a storm, but I suspect it was the wind gusts rather the snowfall that caused it...was wondering if any of you could give me an idea of roughly how often Chitose flights get cancelled and, more specifically, do you think schedules will be affected this coming Sunday? Thanks in advance.
