Nozawa Onsen Now!

Saturday 11th April 2009, 10:14am
Weather conditions: Sunny.
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
It is another beautiful sunny day here in Nozawa. The base depths are now at 210cm at Yamabiko and 120cm at Uenotaira. Visibility is excellent and there is currently a 10km/h North-westerly blowing. Temperature at the top of the mountain is 9C.

It wil be fine and sunny all day today but may be cloudy tomorrow. There is the possibility of light snow and rain Wednesday afternoon and evening, though it will need to cool down considerably for snow to happen -- temperatures will remain high until then.

The Nagasaka gondola, Yamabiko 1 and 2 quads, the Uenotaira quad, the paradise quad, the muzunashi triple, and the skyline pair are all operating for the weekend, so there is still quite a large skiable area of the resort open. Most restaurants down the left hand side of Paradise are open for buiness. The Yunomine course is also open although the lift is not operating so you must ski to the gondola half-way station to return to the top.   Read more ...

Shiga Kogen Now!

Weather conditions: Sun
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
It has been another semi-scorcher today with temperatures well into the double figures. Phew. The sun has been out and hardly a cloud to be found, though fairly hazy. Snow conditions were faily decent this morning considering, though getting rather heavy by the end of the day.

As mentioned yesterdsay, more of Shiga Kogen has been open today - and will be tomorrow - for the weekend. Once we get back to Monday, it will be back to weekday operations.

Naeba Now!

Saturday 11th April 2009, 20:44pm
Weather conditions: Sun
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
15 degrees in Naeba at lunchtime today with the temperature rising more than that earlier this afternoon. Yes, it's been another day of fine and sunny weather in the area.

Tomorrow looks like it will be another fine day tomorrow, though a good chance that things will cloud over later on in the day. Perhaps not as warm as it has been as well. More sun and warmth to follow on Monday though.

More of the same over the weekend too.

Lifts operating at Naeba today and tomorrow:

Prince No2 gondola
Takenokodaira romance (pair) lift
Daishamen romance (pair) lift
Top pair lift

(The last two lifts are weekend-only at the moment).

Kagura is pretty much fully open this weekend and surely the best conditions in the region.

Planned closing dates for Naeba and Kagura:

Naeba: May 6th
Tashiro area of Kagura: May 6th
Kagura Mitsumata (via Mitsumata Ropeway): May 24th

We will continue to make updates to this Naeba Now! page a few times a week, but from now on until the end of the season at Kagura the daily reporting from the Yuzawa area of Niigata will move over to the Yuzawa Now! report section, so remember to check out that page as well for the latest.   Read more ...
