Weather conditions: Sun
New snowfall: --

The conditions yesterday were close to perfect. The powder on Challenger, Schneider and Utopia felt just so good after weeks of waiting for snow.

It's going to be a nice and sunny day today. Not many people are around, so enjoy your private "Gelende". All lifts are open today.

Weather conditions: Sun, cloud
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Yesterday turned out to be a fine day for the most part, with lots of crowds turning up to the more popular places to enjoy the great conditions that had suddenly appeared.

No new snow overnight again and at present the sun is out, some clouds in the sky but it looks like it will be a fine day today. More snow forecast in the coming week.

The snow conditions out there are very good.   Read more ...

Shiga Kogen Now!

Weather conditions: Sun, cloud
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Winter really arrived in style over the weekend. Yesterday didn't bring the "more snow" we were expecting, and today is fine with the sun out (take a look at that image below this morning!), but conditions are really great out there. Some resorts reporting up to 180cm on the hills, so no lack of it now and pretty much everywhere is now open.   Read more ...

Hakuba Now!

Monday 22nd December 2003, 12:16pm
Weather conditions: Clear, some blue overhead
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
After great conditions yesterday, we had the coldest night of the year so far, so the snow should be in excellent condition.

From what I hear, the meter plus of snow we've had is yet to settle and at lower altitudes fell on virtually no base. Sinking right through it is a distinct possibility. Think twice before offpiste runs with difficult outs.

It looks quite clear up there and I'm sure there will still be lots of powder to be had. On the groomers, great snow and few people about mean that laying down perfect arcs should be about as easy as it gets.   Read more ...
