It's a cloudy morning with some sunshine here today. Temperatures are quite mild at the moment and compared to last Sunday about 30cm of snow have melted. If the weatherforecast is right we will get some white stuff from this afternoon.

Watch out for Santa Claus today, who will be coming to the slopes from 10am.    Read more ...

Niseko Now!

Wednesday 24th December 2003, 8:54am
Weather conditions: Blue skies
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Bright blues skies and rays of sunshine. No new snowfall overnight and none expected. First lifts to the groomed corduroy offer the best turns. The Kogen number two lift is carrying riders up to bumpy and icy runs lower down, but the snow remains good up high, off 6C. A day for cameras, sunglasses and suncream.   Read more ...

Yuzawa Now!

Wednesday 24th December 2003, 9:27am
Weather conditions: Cloud
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
No snow overnight again and although a little snowman is right there on the weather forecast (and on the weather spot on TV this morning) - it just doesn't look like we're going to get any.... it's cloudy and mild - around 5-6 degrees at 9am.

We've been speaking with a few of the resorts in Yuzawa and while they were relieved to get the snow last weekend, they're anxiously waiting for the next snowfall. While the majority of runs are open, snow levels are lower than usual for the time of the year.

(Apart from Kagura), they also report really low numbers of guests for the past week, and are wondering whether that is because of people not coming because they thought there wouldn't be good snow conditions - or a worrying trend for the season. (We told them to cheer up, there'll be heaps of foreigners checking out the slopes soon!)

The best snow is up at the Kagura resorts and Gala at the moment. Rumour has it that Santa will be out on the slopes at Gala today - the big question is, skis or board? ;)   Read more ...

Shiga Kogen Now!

Wednesday 24th December 2003, 9:38am
Weather conditions: Cloud
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Cloudy early on but it looks like it will make way to be fine later. No new snow, temperatures not as cold as they have been over the last week or so.

Santa will be on some of the slopes today - stop him and he'll give you a present (or so we've been told).   Read more ...

Hakuba Now!

Wednesday 24th December 2003, 11:01am
Weather conditions: Cloudy, snow looks likely
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
It has clouded over and it looks like we could see snow anytime in the village. The resorts are reporting light snow higher up. After several mild days and cold nights since the big snowfall, expect early spring-like conditions in areas exposed to the sun.

It's looking like we'll get heavy snow again at the weekend.   Read more ...
