Heavy snow fell sporadically in Kutchan town overnight, but only a dusting was received on the mountain in Hirafu. Small flakes are coming down at present, however, conditions remain very hard underfoot. Sharp edges and helmets are a must. Caution advised as rocks continue to poke through on most runs.   Read more ...

Not the best news, I'm afraid. It did snow for most of yesterday, but it didn't leave that much behind, and at town level there's almost nothing to show for it. The slopes will have got more of course, but still not much change on the situation.

Today is cloudy, fairly mild temperatures. A little snowman mark on the horizon for tomorrow and beyond, we hope he turns up...   Read more ...

Snow continued on and off for most of yesterday, but not leaving behind quite as much as was hoped. So conditions are fairly unchanged since yesterday. The sun is out early on with some clouds hanging around.    Read more ...

Glorious sunshine today. 47 have opened the very top run but not the middle ones (?), so you can use the top but it looks like you'll have to access it from the Goryu side (??). They've apparently built a kicker in their park and have also set up a rail.

Away from the big name resorts, Iwatake and Norikura remain closed, as do Highland, Minekata, Sanosaka, Yanaba, and the Cross Country Stadium. Part of Cortina is open.

The current forecast is for heavy snowfall at the weekend.

It cleared up and we have the first winter day of this season that is worth that name. They opened Uenodaira Quad lift and "Uenodaira Gelende", which is perfect for beginners. Tickets are 3000 Yen for adults and 1500 for children until Dec. 19th.
Snow is forecasted again for tomorrow, so hopefully by the end of this week more lifts will be opened.    Read more ...
