Niseko Now!

Monday 23rd April 2007, 9:18am
Weather conditions: Calm and partly cloudy
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Sunny and clear conditions this morning with warm temperatures. There is next to no wind so it’s a great time to take advantage of the spring conditions. Higher up on the mountain is recommended as the snow depth at the base is diminishing. It’s partly cloudy but visibility is great. There is no precipitation forecast for today or for the most part of the week and we are expecting calm weather.

Yuzawa Now!

Monday 23rd April 2007, 9:22am
Weather conditions: Rain, cloud
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
After a fair bit of rain and a warm evening (it did not go below 10 degrees overnight), it is a wet and rainy morning here with some fairly strong windys at times. There is a lot of low cloud and so visibility high up will be quite poor this morning.

GALA Yuzawa resort has now closed for the season, meaning that the only open resorts at Naeba (which officially plans to be part open until May 6th) and Kagura (which plans to be open until May 27th).

Tomorrow looks set to be a fine day.   Read more ...

Furano Now!

Monday 23rd April 2007, 9:32am
Weather conditions: Clear.
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
It’s sunny this morning and with warm temperatures and very little wind. This afternoon the wind will increase slightly with a chance of rain showers. Temperatures will drop this evening so that precipitation may possibly go from rain to snow. With a sunny day forecast for tomorrow it could be something to keep an eye on.

Naeba Now!

Monday 23rd April 2007, 9:53am
Weather conditions: Rain, low cloud
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
The rain arrived late on yesterday afternoon and it is still raining this morning, so it won't be doing any favours to the remaning snow conditions. Hopefully it should clear up this afternoon which is what the forecast is saying. There is a lot of low cloud as well and so visibility is poor this morning.

Lifts open at Naeba are the Dragondola (9am-4:15pm), Prince Number 2 Gondola (8:30am-4pm) and Number 5 Quad lift (8am-5pm). Also, the N-Plateau center closed for the season at the end of yesterday.   Read more ...

Hakuba Now!

Weather conditions: Cloudy and overcast
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
It's a cool morning here in Hakuba with the return of the North winds, only 7 deg.C now as compared to yesterday's near 20 deg.C temperatures in the valley at this time. Overcast and cloudy now, but expected to clear around noon today and temperature should rise to about 12 deg.C. Skiers are few on the slopes today, so a good chance to get out there on your own private resort, lift lines none existent!
