At last, it's the all-Japan Snow Depth Chart. Hurray!

Recommended Posts

Until now this season you have been able to check out the official snow depths at ski resorts and play around with sorting of that data in the Prefecture listings on the site.

You didn't know?! Well just to recap:

 

Go to our Resorts section of the main site:

http://www.snowjapan...pan-ski-resorts

 

OK on the left side you will see a list of prefectures.

Click on one, for example Nagano:

http://www.snowjapan...efecture/nagano

 

Sugoi! Look, there's all the ski jo in Nagano!

See the top of the columns? Click on any of those to sort the data by that field. Click on it again to sort the opposite way.

By doing this you can list up the resorts by snow depth, just like this:

http://www.snowjapan...th&sortdir=DESC

Or indeed you can sort the resorts by town name or any of the other fields on that age.

Yes, I know, it's exciting stuff.

 

But now, and at last, we have our "all Japan" list ready.

Hurray!

 

And here it is:

http://www.snowjapan...ial-snow-depths

 

The data is updated daily.

Please note the disclaimer at the bottom and use it for what it is.

If a resort is not listed, it means that there is no official snow depth data being supplied by that resort.

 

And we are still in the process of linking it up and making a few fine adjustments..... I just wanted to let you know here as soon as it was working.

As such I'm not putting it on our News page yet or on our ridiculously popular and fabulously thrilling Facebook page.

 

Hope it is interesting.

Thanks SJ-David, it is certainly interesting. Wish some of the resorts close to the top were closer to me. :friend:

Cool. Love playing around with these charts when I've got some free time. I've been able to find places that would otherwise have never showed up on my radar!

OK we have now linked this up.

 

There's a link now on the main index page of the site, http://www.snowjapan.com.

 

There is a dropdown link under the "Daily Reports" main navigation of the site... which means that you can get to the chart from every page of the website now.

 

Also added a few new graphic button links to the main Daily Reports page, below the Calendar: http://www.snowjapan...weather-reports.

 

I've also added a link in the Daily Reports drop down menu at the top of the Forums.

Nice!

 

Mt Granview is not at the top of the list...

Presumably that will get straightened out when the database is updated.

I reckon you are right.

 

Mt Granview also have a reputation for.. er... under-reporting.

That is interesting. I'm surprised myself at the Niigata ones --- especially Hakkaisan! Seems odd that one.

Awesome! There are some places that I've never heard of nor seen in the travel books. I hope that the lesser known ones will be less crowded. Saving some ideas for next season!

I had noticed that myself yesterday actually.

 

Looks like the date keeps on updating but the data is obviously old now that the season has finished. We are not in control of that data of course.

 

It would be ideal to note that on the page though not sure if we can do that.
