It is an overcast start to the day with grey/light blue skies. The forecast promised a fine sunny day and it may well end up being like that but right now the sun isn't making an appearance. It is warm though - already over 10 degrees and the temperature may rise to around 20 degrees this afternoon.   Read more ...

Shiga Kogen Now!

Weather conditions: Overcast, bright
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Sun shining through some overcast skies this morning in Shiga Kogen and while it isn't one of those bluebird days yet, it certainly is warm. Even Yokoteyama is reporting a temperature early on of +5, and with the forecast predicting warm temperatures for the next few days I would expect today to be the warmest of the year so far.

The following resort areas and lifts are operating today:

Mammoth (2 lifts)
Ichinose Family (2 lifts)
Okushiga Kogen (2 lifts)
Kumanoyu (4 lifts)
Yakebitaiyama (6 lifts)
Shibutoge (1 lift)   Read more ...

Naeba Now!

Wednesday 16th April 2008, 9:20am
Weather conditions: Overcast
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Right now it is overcast in the region, though sun what we might expect later on in the day. There is only a slight breeze but there is is certainly warm - already at around 8 degrees and those patches of ground visible on the lower slopes are now almost as big as the areas that still have snow.

We're on weekday lift operations, with the following lifts moving at Naeba:

Prince Number 2 gondola
Number 3 quad lift
Number 4 romance (pair) lift   Read more ...

Nozawa Onsen Now!

Wednesday 16th April 2008, 9:27am
Weather conditions: Overcast
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
It will be another fairly warm day today here but it is not as clear as it was yesterday. There's a real overcast cloudy look to the skies this morning. The forecast is for fine sunny weather and so things may well clear up and get brighter later on in the day.

Mid week in Nozawa and the slopes that are open remain close to empty.

Weekday operations are now in effect, meaning that the following lifts are operating at the resort:

Nagasaka Gondola (both sections)
Yamabiko Number 2 Four lift
Yamabiko Four lift   Read more ...

Furano Now!

Wednesday 16th April 2008, 10:08am
Weather conditions: clear skies, warm day
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
The spring weather of the last few days continues and it still looks likely to rise to around 16 degrees this afternoon. The forecast also has fine and sunny weather lined up for every day in the coming week with warm temperatures - the reamining snow will quickly be melting in these conditions.

Though snow remains higher up of course, a look at the webcam at the moment shows some bare slopes and a few people walking their dogs there!   Read more ...
