Nozawa Onsen Now!

Sunday 21st December 2003, 8:00am
Weather conditions: Cloud
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
It was a pretty cold day yesterday, and the strong winds made it even feel colder. The snow quality at the Yamabiko area is perfect, at the bottom the powder was kind of heavy.
Most slopes there (e.g. Utopia, Challenger) were not groomed and many people struggled to make their way down.

Most of the area and lifts opened yesterday. Skyline was not open, but I think they are going to groom it today. Grand Prix, Jumping and Ushikubi are not recommended, as they need another meter of snow to pile up there.

It stopped snowing yesterday evening and right now it is partly cloudy with some sunshine. The forecast has cloud and snow for today. The strong winds have calmed down, making it more fun to go out today.

Children until the age of six get free tickets today.   Read more ...

Hakuba Now!

Sunday 21st December 2003, 10:42am
Weather conditions: Clearing up
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
It has stopped snowing at village level and the sun is starting to poke through. From the village, Happo is visible up to the top of the gondola. Above that remains in cloud.

We got around another 40-50cm yesterday. It was a wild day with thunder and lightening going off in the afternoon while the snow came down. Friends who made it out said visibility was terrible and the lifts were repeatedly interrupted by high winds. If anything, the snow was "too deep".

Almost everywhere is open now.

A warmer front is headed this way, and no more snow is forecast until Christmas Day.    Read more ...
