Yuzawa Now!

Monday 17th April 2006, 9:08am
Weather conditions: Cloud, sun
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
A cloudy start to the day, but there's quite a few breaks in the cloud and the sun is out from time to time. It looks set to be a fine day though generally with more of the same tomorrow and with even a bit of new snow yesterday, conditions should be relatively decent. Temperatures likely to rise to around +6 at town level, so colder than usual for the time of year.

Some fairly strong winds up high, meaning that the lifts at Kagura are currently on standby waiting to open when they die down (as they are forecast to).

While Ishiuchi Maruyama closed yesterday, they have actually announced that they might also open up for 4 days in Golden Week (3rd-6th May) depending on the snow conditions are by then. We'll update you on that nearer the time.

Blue bird today, not a cloud in the sky!

A bit windy up top as there are whisps of snow spin-drifting off the upper peaks. But snow should be great with sushine and no crowds this Monday AM. Put on the sunscreeen and take a camera.

Avalanche danger down to considerable.
Natural and human triggered avalanches possible in steeper terrain. Remain cautious.   Read more ...

Niseko Now!

Monday 17th April 2006, 15:57pm
Weather conditions: Snowing
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Well the sunny day weather a couple of days ago is a distant memory with rain, sleet and snow hitting the region yesterday and continuing throughout today. Yesterday rain started in the morning turning to sleet by lunch and then snow through the afternoon. Today has been much the same with a mixture of sleet and snow. There has been enough to make all the old snow look clean again but it is pretty wet down low. Up high it should be pretty good.
