Hakuba Now!

Friday 21st April 2006, 9:14am
Weather conditions: light snow and overcast
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Back to winter again in Hakuba with snowfall accumulation in the valley of 4-5cms. Still snowng as I type this and looks like it should be pretty sweet up top. Currently it is minus 1 C at the base of Happo One and visibility is limited.
Those die-hard powder hounds will no doubt find some freshies on the upper slopes, albeit a bit on the heavy side but who is complaining .....we got fresh snow yo!

Avalanche danger back up to high.
Natural and human triggered avalanches likely. Travel in avalanche terrain is not recommended. The new wet snow will be very likely to be sliding off steeper terrain.   Read more ...

Yuzawa Now!

Weather conditions: Cloud, sun
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Well, no new snow to report at town level this morning unfortunately. It's a cold morning with lots of low clouds early on and just before some rain was falling but that seems to have been a short shower. Right now the sun is out and it is looking like it might clear up if anything.

Gala and Kagura are reporting some new snowfall though, with Kagura reporting temperatures of -3C.

We'll update Yuzawa Now later on today with more info for the weekend.   Read more ...

Niseko Now!

Friday 21st April 2006, 11:00am
Weather conditions: Partly cloudy
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Well it really did rain yesterday which caused plenty of snowmelt and minor flooding in nearby rivers. It all cleared up though in the evening and today has dawned only partly cloudy with plenty of sunny breaks. The snow will be soft up on the mountain but the return of light winds and sun will still make it a great day to be up there. Tomorrow should be another nice day with more sun forecast but rain is expected to return to the region later in Sunday.    Read more ...

Nozawa Onsen Now!

Weather conditions: Snow/rain, cloud
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
It's almost as if winter is back. Some rain down at the bottom but snow up top today (and even snow at the bottom at times), and generally cold weather once more. It looks like the weather will clear up for tomorrow though with cloud/sun currently forecast.

For the weekend the resort plans to open up the Uenotaira quad.   Read more ...

Shiga Kogen Now!

Friday 21st April 2006, 17:39pm
Weather conditions: Snow, cloud
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
It may be nearing the end of April, but we have more new snow to report at Shiga Kogen. Not huge amounts of snow, but snow all the same - and with the good weather forecast for tomorrow it should be a decent weekend out on the slopes that are still open.

Remember that you can now get to Shiga Kogen direct on Route 292 from Gunma.

Next update coming next week.... in the meantime have a good weekend!   Read more ...
