Yuzawa Now!

Wednesday 12th April 2006, 8:42am
Weather conditions: Cloud
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
More rain last night with some strong winds blowing around as well. There are still some fairly strong winds, but it seems that both Gala and Kagura are going to be able to open as normal today.

At the moment it isn't raining but according to the forecast it is supposed to today - let's hope that the rain clouds miss Yuzawa. Earlier on it was just cloudy but it looks like the sun might well make an appearance as the clouds seem to be breaking.

Another warm morning with temperatures at 13 degrees.   Read more ...

Nozawa Onsen Now!

Wednesday 12th April 2006, 9:17am
Weather conditions: Clear and sunny
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
A blue sky day with mild breezes and no-one around. The snow conditions have suffered due to the rain yesterday and the forecast is for more rain it seems. The melt, lower down, is well under way, exposing rock, but thankfully there is a healthy thick base up top that will take quite a while to leave us.   Read more ...

Niseko Now!

Wednesday 12th April 2006, 9:28am
Weather conditions: Overcast
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
A little patchy light rain moving across the reion today. The temp got to about 6 degrees yesterday and remained above freezing throughout the night. Today's temps are expected tog et even warmer. So the spring meltdown appears to be starting in earnest. Still temps are meant to be considerably cooler over the coming week.

Very soft conditions can be expected on the mountain with above freezing temps right to the top. If you are intending to head into any of the back bowls be very careful as avalanche danger will be high.    Read more ...

Hakuba Now!

Weather conditions: Cloudy
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Good morning! The rains have finally stopped here, nice to have a break after the long day and night of wetness. The skies are still cloudy but we can see some patches of blue sky now and then. Calm breezes out of the North and temperature at about 6 deg.C here in the Valley, 3~4 deg.C up top of Happo now. Temperatures should be climbing to about 8~10 deg.C up top and 13~15 deg.C in the Valley by lunch time, so expect conditions to be typically spring-like out there on the slopes and don't forget to put on some fast wax!

Short Range Forecast
Overcast skies expected to prevail through tomorrow with chance of rain tomorrow afternoon. Skies clearing by Friday and sunny through Saturday, clouds and rain back on Sunday.

Avalanche danger remains HIGH.
Natural and human triggered avalanches LIKELY. Travel in avalanche terrain not recommended.   Read more ...
