Snow and weather reports posted on Monday 25th May 2020

Minakami Now!

Saturday 19th April 2008, 8:02am
Weather conditions: Overcast
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
The rain came down pretty hard on Thursday which caused the rivers to swell on Friday. The odd kayaker and rafter were spotted enjoying the Spring flows yesterday with some cars with snowboards on the roof still heading to Tenjindaira. Tenjin still has a snow base of 250cm with good coverage on all runs (except the return course).

The weather looks like it will be improving throughout the day today with mostly cloud but some strong winds possible later today and in the early hours of tomorrow morning. Monday onwards looks like sunny warm weather.   Read more ...

Myoko Now!

Saturday 19th April 2008, 8:47am
Weather conditions: Cloudy
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Akakura's lifts are back open as the winds die down, but there are still moderate winds with gusts from time to time. Seki Onsen still has a thick, 3.5 meter run. Akakura, though, is starting to sport bald spots in some of the lower areas, so you may want to slalom around those with care.

The pick is Seki today weather and crowd-wise, but if the half-pipe and jumps are what your into, Akakura Onsen (not Kanko) is the place.

Your Myoko area levels for today:
115cm (Akakura Kanko Resort);
110cm (Akakura Onsen);
335cm (Seki Onsen)

Yuzawa Now!

Saturday 19th April 2008, 9:19am
Weather conditions: Cloud, sun
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Cloudy start but there are breaks in the cloud and right now the sun is shining through. The forecast still has us down for rain on and off today, so looks like it might be quite changeable.

Less wind than yesterday and all the places that should be open look like they will be open today (Naeba, Kagura, Gala Yuzawa).

Currently it is around 7 degrees with a high of around 12 likely this afternoon.   Read more ...

Niseko Now!

Saturday 19th April 2008, 9:59am
Weather conditions: Sunny
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Another warm start to the day with the sun back out and an expected 17degrees C in the village.

Winds are very light allowing all lifts to operate, being a Saturday the Gondola is also operating, the snow is slushy but fun so overall a great day to be up on the mountain.

More sunshine and warm temperatures expected over the weekend and into next week.

Shiga Kogen Now!

Saturday 19th April 2008, 10:14am
Weather conditions: Cloud, fog
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Poor visibility this morning in the Maruike area and it seems in a fair few parts of Shiga Kogen. Low cloud/fog is making it difficult to see much in front. That may well lift though as the day progresses.

There is much less wind than yesterday, pretty calm for the most part.

Weekend brings with it more lifts operating, and today the following lifts are moving:

Shiga Kogen Ropeway
Higashitateyama (1 lift)
Mammoth (1 lift)
Ichinose Family (2 lifts)
Terakoya (2 lifts)
Ichinose Diamond (1 lifts)
Yakebitaiyama (2 lifts)
Okushiga Kogen (3 lifts)
Kumanoyu (5 lifts)

Shibutoge (1 lift)   Read more ...
