Nozawa Onsen Now!

Sunday 23rd April 2006, 9:00am
Weather conditions: Cloud
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
It is turning out to be a cloudy weekend with mild temperatures, good visibility and of course very spring-like heavy snow conditions. In the village it will probably rise to around + 11 degrees today, with a low of + 5 early this morning.

With a few weeks still to go there is still a lot of snow up there and not many people turning up to check it out. If you come weekdays you'll almost have it to yourself!

The resort plans to be open until 7th May. Lifts open in the coming week Monday 24th to Friday 28th) are:

Nagasaka gondola;
Yamabiko Number 2 Quad;
Yamabiko Quad;
Higake Triple

Looking at the forecast it looks like we should have fine weather Monday to Wednesday.

We'll post the next update to this page before next weekend.   Read more ...

Niseko Now!

Sunday 23rd April 2006, 13:16pm
Weather conditions: Clear
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Yesterday remained cool and cloudy but today has dawned completely clear with light winds and mild temperatures making for a perfect spring day. If you head up the mountain you'll need plenty of sunscreen. The top of the mountain is still offering some fairly nice snow but lower down it is very slushy and you need fresh wax on skis/board to move through it with any ease. The rain that was previously forecast to come through today is now not meant to reach us until tomorrow and is expected to continue for a few days. So get out and enjoy today's sunshine.    Read more ...
