Weather conditions: Sun, cloud, snow
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Big flakes of wet snow fell all yesterday, helping to provide a good bonding base to the ice below. 15cm fell throughout the course of the day, followed by another 10cm overnight.

Weather conditions are currently still and temperatures mild. Snow conditions down low are heavy, so best turns to be found on the upper half of the mountain - lifts 6C and Hanazono 3 are today's picks. After early sunny moments, today's forecast is for more snow.   Read more ...

Shiga Kogen Now!

Weather conditions: Fine, clouds moving in later?
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
About 50cm on the floor now and more lifts opening up in the Shiga Kogen area for the weekend, good news. Still not masses of snow, but enough and some decent conditions out there early on today. The forecast today is for snow but currently fine weather - all signs point to snowclouds moving in later on and us getting some decent snowfall this weekend.   Read more ...

Yuzawa Now!

Weather conditions: Cloudy
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Rain at town level last night, but it was snowing up top - so Kagura and Gala got some new snow to boast about. This morning it was sunny early on but has since clouded over and it looks like the snow clouds are on their way. Snow forecast for later today and over the weekend, so everyone is hopeful that this will be a considerable dump!

Temperatures currently around 5 degrees, most likely will fall as the day progresses and into the weekend.

Still only parts of Kagura, Naeba and Gala open, if it snows a lot tonight there is a chance of more places opening up tomorrow. Fingers crossed.

A few centimeters of snow fell in the upper area. Right now it is cloudy but according to the weather forecast we will get the first major dump of the season later this day. Fingers crossed.
More lifts and areas opened today. Strong winds in the upper area might cause the Gondola lifts to close again.   Read more ...
