Weather conditions: Cloud
New snowfall: --

Unfortunately it stopped snowing yesterday around noon. But even here in the village not all the snow melted during the day, on the roofs and balconies of the houses there are still about 2 centimeters of snow. All the slopes in the ski area are covered with at least a few centimeters of snow, too. It's cloudy today, both in the village and the ski area.
The ski area remains closed.

Well, the snow continued on and off for most of yesterday - about 15cm in town level in the end. This morning it is still cloudy (with the sun peeking through at times), and still cold, but no more snow falling at the moment.

Good news from Kagura, where it seems that a large part of the Karuga area will be open from today. Other resorts on stand-by as we wait for more snow - and according to forecasts that might be tomorrow.   Read more ...

20cm of new snow has fallen overnight, and big flakes continue to come down this morning. Both Kogen and Alpen resorts are still only offering beginner courses and middle mountain runs.

Shiga Kogen Now!

Wednesday 10th December 2003, 9:15am
Weather conditions: Cloud, fine
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Not much more snow to talk of this morning, with levels still around 10cm. Another cold morning, but it looks like it is going to be a clear - maybe even sunny - day.

Unfortunately, not enough to open the resort, so it remains closed.

The good news is that snow is forecast for tomorrow - hopefully by the weekend the lifts will be moving.   Read more ...

Hakuba Now!

Weather conditions: Bright sunshine
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Happo has opened today. I'm not so good on the names of the Happo lifts, but I think you can ride the Alpen one and the Kokusai #3. Goryu (top run only) and 47 (middle bit) are as yesterday. Our woman on the slopes said there was good coverage at the open part of 47, but that the snow was a little slow. The middle part doesn't have much gradient and has a couple of flat sections that are hard going when they've not been groomed.

As shown in the pics, it's a beautiful day here and the mountains are visible for the first time in a while. The remaining snow at village level is now very crusty after an overnight frost, and it looks like much of it will melt away today.   Read more ...
