Weather conditions: Rain, low cloud
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
There were some strong winds blowing late last night, and they are still with us this morning - as is some heavy rain early on and rain forecast for pretty much the rest of the day. So it's a pretty nasty start to the day here...

Interestingly, the weather forecast is currently telling us that there is actually a chance that we might see some snow fall overnight (esp in higher areas).

Due to poor visibility, parts of the Kagura resort are not open this morning. (Kagura itself is open up to Kagura No 1 Quad, with Tashiro open up to Tashiro No 6 Romance Lift)   Read more ...

Hakuba Now!

Weather conditions: light rain and overcast
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Heavy rain early this morning and finally starting to lighten up. We should see that coming to a stop by noon today and remaining cloudy till midnight when it's supposed start snowing.

Snow and rain throughout much of tomorrow it seems, but sunshine expected for Saturday and back to cloudy on Sunday - spring weather for sure! Temperatures will be just a variable, 8 deg.C in the Valley now and dropping to nearly 0 deg.C tonight, staying around the 5 deg.C mark tomorrow and back up to 15 deg.C on Saturday, keep your guard up. Winds out of the West, calm now but expected to pick up later. Good day to remain indoors drinking hot chocolate and reading a good book beside the fire.

Avalanche danger back up to high.
Natural and human triggered avalanches likely. Travel in avalanche terrain is not recommended.   Read more ...

Shiga Kogen Now!

Weather conditions: Rain, cloud
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Rain early on this morning and there are a lot of low clouds meaning that visibility is poor. It looks like it might actually be snow later on.

The news of the day is that Route 292 that connects Shiga Kogen with Kusatsu was officially reopened earlier this morning, allowing people to easily get to Shiga Kogen direct from the Gunma side.   Read more ...

Niseko Now!

Weather conditions: Raining
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
The rain has started to fall and temps are very mild. The rain is expected to become heavier throughout the day and continue through the night but should clear tomorrow. Not a great day to be up on the mountain at all. I'd suggest relaxing by a fire and watching a good movie or two.    Read more ...

Just a quick update - for a short while this morning the rain turned into snow even down at town level, and then later on the rain clouds moved on leaving behind some low clouds. The evening forecasts say that we might even get some new snow overnight (up to 10cm in Yuzawa), so lets hope they are right!   Read more ...
