Weather conditions: Snowing
New snowfall: --

Yesterday the winds abated allowing most lifts to operate from mid morning onwards. The snow continued through the day and much of the night adding another 20cm or so. I never thought that I could get sick of snow falling but when you have to clear some of it each day you do start longing for a little break. Still for those arriving for some turns you will find them very deep in some of the lightest powder found on this earth. Snow is continuing lightly this morning and should continue throughout the day. We may get a little break in the snow tomorrow before the next system starts to move through.    Read more ...

Yuzawa Now!

Weather conditions: Snow

It was snowing most of yesterday (with a curious period when the clouds cleared and we had blue skies for a short time), and there's another 15-20cm overnight to report this morning. The winds are still blowing though, fairly strongly at times, and so it feels colder than it actually is.

The strong winds mean again that only parts of Kagura will be open - actually, just the Mitsumata courses.

It looks like the snow is set to continue today and into tomorrow.



The windy snowy conditions continue this afternoon - just about 5cm on the car since this morning but the wind has probably blown a lot of the new snow off.

We can also bring you a report (and two new photos) from the slopes of Kandatsu - thanks to montoya:

Very windy, poor visibility, only the main lift was running. Snow was also somewhat heavy. It was almost deserted, maybe 20 people out there at the most. My bet is to wait a few days for conditions to calm down.    Read more ...

Shiga Kogen Now!

Strong winds and snow again this morning with visibility right down. I don't expect the slopes to have many people on them today, most people will surely choose an onsen over going out there.... and the fact as well that some more exposed lifts will not be operating today.

It is very cold out there as well, with temperatures of -19 being recorded up at Yokoteyama. Brrrrr. When this storm clears though, conditions will be excellent.   Read more ...

Hakuba Now!

Weather conditions: Snowing and overcast
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Overnight we received another amazing amount of fresh powder snow. 30cms on all the cars in town to clear away and 50 cms on the top slopes to play in. The wind is up again today and the visibility will be variable though the day as clouds come and pass.

The slopes were empty yesterday, considering that it was a Sunday and powder aplenty. But it was all the better for the few that were on the slopes getting Fresh Tracks once the lifts got open. Nothing better that being first up the lifts and first down the virgin powder covered slopes. Hakuba You Rock! Nowhere else in the world could you have consecutive days of 20-60 cm of snow fall, Fresh Tracks all day and no-one to get in your way, except Hakuba! Honest. :) Yesterday brought smiles a mile wide and powder caked back at the base and everyone is up and rearing to go again today with even less people as it is a week day.

So if you can pull a sicky and get up here do it, because it is sick and if you don't make it you will be sick of all the talk of the best season in at least a decade!   Read more ...
