Weather conditions: Hazy sunshine.
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Very hazy here again this morning with the tops of the mountains hidden. It feels warmer than usual and looks like the haze will clear away to give blue sky this afternoon as it did yesterday. Despite all this warm weather and rain the top sections of the mountain are still surprisingly good and there are very few people up there.

Yuzawa Now!

Sunday 22nd April 2007, 10:33am
Weather conditions: Cloud, some blue sky
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Well the day has started off fine with the sun out at the moment and a fair bit of blue skies as well. The rain that was forecast now looks likely to be with us later in the afternoon and overnight.

It is a warm morning - it was already over 15 degrees at 10am, and will probably rise to around 18 degrees.

Once the rain clears up tomorrow morning it looks like it would turn into a fine day.

Today is the last day of the season for the Gala Yuzawa resort.   Read more ...

Naeba Now!

Sunday 22nd April 2007, 11:04am
Weather conditions: Cloud
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
It's a mixed bag this morning. Very mild once more and some cloud but a bit of blue sky as well. We had rain forecast but right now there is no rain and it looks like it may well be later in the afternoon or this evening before that arrives.

The official snow depths at Naeba haven't changed for the last few days, but with the temperatures of the last few and personal observations it seems unlikely that they are in actual fact unchanged... expect more brown and green to be appearing even higher up now.   Read more ...

Hakuba Now!

Sunday 22nd April 2007, 11:44am
Weather conditions: Cloudy and overcast
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
A few light rain showers earlier this morning but the rains have subsided now. Cloudy and overcast weather to continue today with temperatures expected to climb to a balmy 20 deg.C in the valley! Light winds out of the W.S.W and visibility good up to about 1,500 m a.s.l. , above that we can expect poor visibility due to the low elevation cloud cover. Still some snow up there though, for those who have not yet retired their skis or boards for the season. Enjoy!
