Myoko Now!

Friday 21st February 2020, 6:32am
Weather conditions: Sunny and clear
New snowfall: 0cm
Snow depth: --
A very early report today; cross-country race for primary school students, and your reporter will be out on the course checking the bib numbers of the contestants as they pass a checkpoint.

I have to apologize (if it's true) that Seki Onsen was closed yesterday, but we didn't report this. Of course, they're not on the city's listing, and they didn't have any information up on their site. I'll ask around and see what the story was, and will report anything we discover. They claim 350cm of snow, so that can't be the cause (yes, I am being sarcastic).

A real dusting only of snow overnight, less than one cm. I wanted to give the real situation on the ground for today, so most resorts probably haven't reported yet, but things will not have changed a lot since yesterday (I'll mark new reports below).

It stayed fairly cold on the runs, so we didn't lose much snowpack. It's sunny again, and the freezing level is going up, so things may change by tomorrow. Getting worried about the resorts on the southern side of Myoko, like Kurohime, which has closed a couple of times already because of low snow.

Geto Kogen Now!

Friday 21st February 2020, 7:41am
Weather conditions: Fine, cloud
New snowfall: 0cm
Snow depth: --
Morning.

The sun is out as I write this report. No fresh snow to report after a generally cloudy day and clearer evening.

Occasionally strong winds but lifts should be opening as scheduled I reckon.

Chilly to start off but will be fairly mild - more so tomorrow. Hopefully we'll have some fresh snow after that to report come Monday morning.

All tree runs apart from Extreme appear to be scheduled to open, but I recommend checking with the resort after 8:30am if that is important to you.

Nozawa Onsen Now!

Friday 21st February 2020, 7:55am
Weather conditions: Fine, partly cloudy early on
New snowfall: 0cm
Snow depth: --
Good morning from Matsumoto.

Yes, I had to leave Nozawa yesterday morning but will be back tonight.

Luckily after a call to my friend in Nozawa, it's an easy report this morning as the sun is out and it should be a fine day especially once the low valley cloud disperses.

It will be rather mild down in the village, yes, but it should remain chilly on the mountain. I wish I was able to get out there.

Milder temperatures are still expected tomorrow and we can hope to avoid rain (at least until later in the day) and there might be snow overnight into Sunday.

Minakami Now!

Friday 21st February 2020, 8:04am
Weather conditions: Sunny and clear
New snowfall: 0cm
Snow depth: --
Today is clear and sunny with temps forecast to hover around zero at around 1000m. Riding conditions are average at best with a prominent rain crust in places and pockets of powder, along with the odd ice cookie thrown in.

Weather is forecast to be clear till tomorrow when snow is expected. Doesn't look like a particularly robust snowfall but you never know.

Strong winds are expected at higher elevations on Sunday with more snow before things clear Monday. From Tuesday onward, looks like a solid snowfall... lower elevations are starting to look quite depressing so some fresh white stuff is what the doctor ordered.

The skies have cleared and it is a beautiful morning here in Zao Onsen.

Definitely a feel-good morning and I'm sure a lot of people will be heading up to make the most of it.

While today is starting off cold, it will end up being a mild day and milder still tomorrow. We should be back to snow for Sunday though as it gets colder once again. Might need to expect some strong winds too early week...

Niseko Now!

Friday 21st February 2020, 8:31am
Weather conditions: Cloud, some blue sky and sun
New snowfall: 5cm
Snow depth: --
Good morning from Niseko.

Just a bit more snowfall to report to you this morning. There is a lot of cloud around at the moment but some blue sky as well and the sun has been making itself seen too at times this morning.

All lifts are scheduled to be operating as planned this morning.

Tomorrow is still looking likely to be rather mild but it should not last too long with snow due again for Sunday.

And that's about all I have for this morning! I hope you have a good day.

Niseko Avalanche Report

Moiwa Mountain Base: -5°, 5cm in last 12 hrs. Moiwa 800m: measured NW 6m/s(equip failure), -7.0°, 30cm snowdrift development. Yu no Sawa 1000m: WNW 293deg 3.3m/s, -10.4°. Niseko Village 900m: WNW 293deg 3.3m/s, -9.6°. Hirafu 1000m :WNW 291deg 0.7m/s(propeller icing?), -10.8°. Hanazono 720m: NNW 324deg 3.4m/s, -7.0°. Annupuri 1100m: Wind meter failure Annupuri 1000m: snow depth 180cm Coastal data: Benkei Cape: 12m/s. Kamui Cape WNW 9m/s, 1031hPa, wave 1.5m. Kutchan Weather Station:-2.2°, 5cm new snow in last 24hrs.

We are on the edge of a high pressure system, moderately strong westerly winds that have caused snowdrift development above 800m. With little snow overnight, yesterday's tracks are still visible. From data and observation snowdrifts have stabilized and general avalanche risk is low. Peak gates are expected to be open. Off-piste snow extremely variable. Be careful falling into cracks or hitting trees. Today's snow is shallow but good and winds have dropped from yesterday. Moiwa Gate 6, the upper Moiwa Bowl area is starting to crack from ground heat, take care.

When going out the gates carry a beacon, shovel, probe, short rope and some emergency food. Next winter a beacon and helmet will be compulsory to use the Niseko gates system. Have a good day.

Yuzawa Now!

Friday 21st February 2020, 8:40am
Weather conditions: Clear blue skies
New snowfall: 0cm
Snow depth: --
Good morning from Yuzawa.

After a day indoors pushing keys on a keyboard, I ventured out to walk my imaginary dog last night and was surprised to have some spots of rain falling. Wasn't expecting that, I thought it ended up being just mostly cloudy for the day.

But anyway, this morning there are clear blue skies over Yuzawa and it is a beautiful morning. And that is what we are expecting for the day today. Temps are hovering around zero now with a high of about +7C forecast for later this afternoon.

Tomorrow? Bit warmer than today with mostly cloudy forecast and the chance of rain later in the day, which may change to snow by Sunday morning. (I wouldn't expect too much from it - but would be extremely happy to be wrong with that comment!)

Anyway, it's a lovely morning. Time to get away from the keyboard I think.

About the data in the above ‘snowfall as reported by ski resorts’ table
* The table within the above report contains data that is published by individual ski resorts
* The data shown is the amount of snowfall that the ski resorts are themselves reporting each 24 hour period on the upper areas of their mountain
* The source ‘new snowfall’ data and ‘total accumulation’ data is not updated at the same time
* The ‘new snowfall’ data is updated in the morning
* The ‘accumulation’ data is apparently updated/refreshed at midnight
* That means that there is a time lag between the two numbers being updated
* We manually check and update the data just before we publish each Hakuba Now report - so the data in each Hakuba Now report table is what is available at that time
* Any odd-looking numbers are due to the source data. We are not responsible for and have no control over the data. We are simply sharing the data with you
* Just to be extra clear, unlike our own ‘observed snowfall’ data from base that we show at the top of each report, the data in the table is not an independent observation by SnowJapan
* A more in-depth introduction and explanation can be found in this report   Read more ...
