Weather conditions: Overcast, cloud
New snowfall: --

Yesterday ended up being a warm day - with the thermometer up to +17 early afternoon. It was an overcast but bright day and today looks like it might be a similar story. 8 degrees early on, but that will once more rise to around 17 again.

It looks like temperatures will drop and there is a good chance of rain tomorrow.   Read more ...

Nozawa Onsen Now!

Wednesday 19th April 2006, 10:00am
Weather conditions: Overcast, cloudy
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Today is similar to how it was yesterday with a generally cloudy sky and an overcast look to the day. It's still fairly bright though. As the season draws to a close there is still a large amount of snow up there, with official numbers telling us that there is still nearly 4 meters up at the top! Conditions are as you would expect them however, but with the fine spring days there is still fun to be had.

Lifts open at the moment - Nagasaka Gondola, Yamabiko No 2 quad, Yamabiko quad, Higake triple.   Read more ...

Hakuba Now!

Weather conditions: Cloudy
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
It's cloudy today with a little cooler temps than yesterday, about 10 deg.C here at 10:30 AM and probably won't get much warmer. Winds out of the South today, light to none at the moment but that could change later on. Visibility is fair and lifts at the top of the resorts are running so it might be good to get out today before the rains return tomorrow.

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

Supposedly the snow yesterday was a lot of fun. Not the dry powder of winter but with hardly anyone on the mountain fresh tracks were available all over.

Today is fine but cloudy and cool. Rain is forecast over the next couple of days with mild temps. Still that is to be expected at this time of the year. Snow still covers all of the landscape much of the way to sea level and it looks like it will be into May before even the valley floor is mostly free of snow. Some farmers in the region have had enough of waiting and have cleared the snow off in rows and started planting. Most have spread charcoal over the snow and others have also ploughed up the surface to help the melt along. So none of them will be upset with milder temps and rain.    Read more ...
