Weather conditions: Sun. cloud
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Consistent snow fell yesterday, helping to top up both groomers and tree runs. Hirafu's tree run access, however, remains limited. Rocks and sasa bamboo grass are still visible in most areas.

No new snow last night, and blue skies overhead this morning. Wind blown snow has helped to fill some of yesterday's tracks, but best runs on the groomers today. Temperatures are forecasted to be slightly warmer.



Hirafu resort has started running its free village shuttle buses. Both night skiing and Hanazono side are rumoured to be opening soon.    Read more ...

No snow early on, it's bright and fairly mild this morning compared with the last few days, with just some clouds hanging around. The forecast says we might be getting snow later on in the day.   Read more ...

Weather conditions: Cloud, (snow later?)
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
A cloudy foggy morning early on, no new snow. The forecast is for snow (and even the possiblity of RAIN if we are very unlucky), so fingers crossed it starts falling soon. Temperatures around -3 presently, 10cm of snow - not enough to get those lifts moving.   Read more ...

Nozawa Onsen Now!

Weather conditions: Cloud, Fog
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
It's very foggy in the lower parts of the ski area today. Only at the top of the ski area there is no fog.
Tomorrow Kokenashi is going to open: that's the same slope that was open last Saturday - a very short one where it takes much longer to take the chair lift up than to ski down - in other words, not a very exciting one. We didn't get any new snow but according to the weather forecast it's supposed to snow tomorrow......

Hakuba Now!

Thursday 11th December 2003, 14:43pm
Weather conditions: Overcast, rain or snow on the way
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
It's cloudy today and some form of precipation is forecast for this evening. Let's hope it's snow. The temperature is currently two degrees in the village.

The new photos were taken yesterday at Goryu. The upper course there is apparently quite bumpy now. At 47, its a bit uneven and icy in patches, but you can use pretty much the entire width of the three courses that are open. Best value at the moment is at Happo who say they are going to open Kurobishi tomorrow. The open runs there have much more pitch than those at 47/Goryu.

It's the X-Trail Jam in Tokyo this weekend, so good luck to local pro Miyawaki Kentaro. Come back in the car, big fella!   Read more ...
