Yuzawa Now!

Thursday 10th December 2009, 9:00am
Weather conditions: Sun, some cloud
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
This morning is similar to how things started yesterday. The sun is out over Yuzawa and we have only a few clouds in the sky. It will probably reach around 11 degrees during the day too.

The snow is still on the radar for perhaps Sunday night and Monday and hopefully beyond that. It would be great if things could really get going soon, though remember a fair few resorts in the area don't plan to open for at least another week yet anyway.

Tashiro is preparing to open this weekend.

Apparently the snow machines up at Kagura made 15cm of new snow, for those interested in such things!

Shiga Kogen Now!

Thursday 10th December 2009, 9:17am
Weather conditions: Sun, blue skies
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Today looks like it will be very similar to how yesterday was. The sun is out and we have blue skies all around. It's still -1 degree though here at the moment and not likely to warm up too much. Later on in the day may see things clouding over with a decent chance of a slight snowfall on higher elevations and perhaps a few sprinklings over the weekend. It still looks like we might get a decent snowfall on Monday, so keep an eye on that.

Resorts are not itching to get open and hoping that they might be able to either at the weekend or soon after. Of course it all depends on the snow and we'll give you an update tomorrow with the latest.   Read more ...

Naeba Now!

Thursday 10th December 2009, 10:09am
Weather conditions: Sun
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
It's a sunny start to the day here but there is a good chance that it will end cloudy, with rain on the forecast for tomorrow in the village hopefully meaning snow higher up. That cold front at the end of the weekend is still due and we might expect some significant snowfall around Sunday night / Monday.

I'll update tomorrow with the latest on Tashiro which plans to open on Saturday.   Read more ...

Niseko Now!

Thursday 10th December 2009, 12:32pm
Weather conditions: Clear
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Today is one of those rare days in the Niseko area where not a cloud can be seen. With the clear skies last night the temperature plunged down to -8 and currently the bright sunshine has raised temps back up to around freezing at village level making for very pleasant conditions on the mountain. A great day to get some pics of Youtei across the valley.
Things are still looking for a little rain early on Saturday turning to snow later and much colder and snowy weather then hopefully for much of the rest of the month.    Read more ...

There was no new snow overnight, but those on the mountain reported the quality of the powder as very good. Lots of international visitors starting to hit town this week. More snow looks like it will arrive around tomorrow evening - here's hoping.   Read more ...
