Niseko Now!

Monday 16th February 2004, 7:18am
Weather conditions: Cloud and fog
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Warm temperatures yesterday created heavy spring-like conditions on the hill, and lots of snow melted down in the village. Snow cover on the roads disappeared revealing the asphalt, and rivers of water flowed through village drains.

Everything refroze overnight, but the thermometer currently sits on a mild 0C and is expected to rise to +2 this afternoon.

A dusting of new snow has fallen, but conditions remain hard and uneven underfoot. Tree runs are best avoided today, with the smoothest turns being on groomers towards the top of the resort. Overcast skies combined with low cloud cover are, however, currently limiting visibility - another early onsen day.   Read more ...

Weather conditions: Clud, Fog,Snow
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
We had a snowstorm last night and got about 25 cm of new snow. Conditions were not good yesterday since the snow was too heavy. They should be much better today. Right now it is cloudy down here in the village, in the upper part of the ski area it is very foggy. It's still snowing a little.

Yamabiko slopes were closed all day yesterday, so the conditions should be best on those slopes.

Kandahar wets course is open today.   Read more ...

Very strong winds yesterday and wet snow falling for the most part - a fairly miserable kind of day, with some lifts stopping because of the winds.

About 15-20cm of new snow this morning, great news for the slopes that were mostly in need of it, and the snow is still coming down now. Looks like it should continue through into the afternoon.

2 new pics added below, taken 9am this morning.   Read more ...

After the heavy winds and wild conditions of yesterday, it has calmed down a bit now. Cloudy early on but brightening up as the day moves on. Still cold, lower than -10, and some new snow overnight are keeping conditions generally good.   Read more ...
 

Hakuba Now!

Monday 16th February 2004, 18:09pm
Weather conditions: Clear
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Mainly clear conditions lower down today with the upper slopes in cloud. We also had a good helping of snow again overnight as forecast. The snow is a touch sticky again, so onpiste conditions are firm and a little bumpy, while offpiste it's nice but not bottomless. When it's a little firmer, at least you get more scope for traversing out.

Goryu reported another 60cm(!) overnight but over at Happo their report of 20cm seemed a fair reflection of conditions in that area.   Read more ...
