Niseko Now!

Monday 23rd February 2004, 8:09am
Weather conditions: Snow and wind
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Yesterdays heavy snow quickly turned into torrents of rain. This morning, however, the rain has turned into snow. Only about 5-10cms has fallen and it is heavily wind affected, making it fine and dense.

The wind is strong, causing whiteout conditions. The resort can confirm that the Kogen No 1 and No 4 chairs will be moving but no decisions has been made regarding the remaining lifts.

A strong North Westerly is expected to bring snow and wind for the next few days.   Read more ...

Yuzawa Now!

Weather conditions: Snow
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Very warm one yesterday, then in the evening strong rains arrived adding to problems! Still raining this morning in nearby Shiozawa, but the rain had turned to snow early on in Yuzawa - and (wet) snow is now still falling and coming down quite heavily as this is being written.

Strong winds early on as well, so some lifts will not be moving...check with the resorts if you are planning to be out there today.

Temperatures way down compared with the weekend, but still above zero.

Hakuba Now!

Monday 23rd February 2004, 9:55am
Weather conditions: Blizzards
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
After five days of continuous sunshine in Hakuba, a rare weather pattern at any time of year let alone February, the clouds rolled in yesterday giving us torrential rain. The mercury has since dropped below zero again and we now have snow that is being driven hard by some very strong winds. There are no reports in so far today, but disruptions to the lifts seem inevitable.

In the past few days, the accumulated snow at village level has retreated by at least 30cm due to the warm weather. However, there is still a good base on the hill.

More typical winter weather is expected in the valley later in the week. Don't put your powder boards away yet!   Read more ...

After a weekend of fine and very mild weather, a more wintery day today making people here a bit happier - the snow was definitely beginning to suffer with all the spring like weather.

Some new snow to report today, with strong winds to go with it. A bit of a wild morning, less so this afternoon.

No real snowfall forecast for the next few days...   Read more ...
