Minakami Now!

Weather conditions: Sun/cloud
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Still very autumnal here with very little to report on the snow front. The temperature is up and down, with the weather alternating between fine weather and the odd rainfall. If the temperature is cold enough there is a light dusting up high when it rains but it isn't lasting long.

Tenjin are still hoping to have their first slope operational on 21st November. With the temperatures predicted to stay in double figures for the next few days it will be interesting to see how they go with that.   Read more ...

Shiga Kogen Now!

Weather conditions: Cloud, sun
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Just a quick update with the latest. It was a fantastic weekend and very autumnal up here. It was colder yesterday with another slight sprinkling up top but no real new snow to report. It's a fairly chilly morning with a lot of cloud but more and more blue skies appearing as I write this.

It looks like we can expect things to warm up again towards the weekend with colder temperatures coming back early in the week, perhaps bringing some snowfall as well.

In other news, the Route 292 road connecting Shiga Kogen with Kusatsu in Gunma will be closing for the winter from Monday 15th November. From that day, the only way into Shiga Kogen will be Route 292 from the lower Yamanouchi area. That road will likely re-open again from 21st April next year.   Read more ...

Yuzawa Now!

Wednesday 10th November 2010, 11:02am
Weather conditions: Cloud, sun > rain later
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
The last week has seen some spectacular weather conditions and scenery in Yuzawa - especially over the weekend when it was surely the peak of the autumn colours around town level. Beautiful.

It has chilled down a bit since then but still not particularly cold. Right now it is 9 degrees outside and cloudy. The sun is peaking through the clouds but rain is forecast soon through into tomorrow.

Things should warm up again a bit before and during the weekend with colder temperatures probably back around Monday.

Only a week and a half before Kagura hope to open. Looks like there might have been a slight sprinkling right up at the top since yesterday but basically no snow really yet.   Read more ...
