Furano Now!

Weather conditions: Cloudy. Light snow expected around lunchtime.
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
First weekend on for the season so a great chance for locals to get out on the mountain. There has not been a noticeable increase in skiing tourists for the weekend.

Unlike international resorts that are often fully booked for opening weekend, Furano has the feeling that it's just operational for locals. This is not true of course, but there are no ski buses operational yet bringing guests form the nearby airports. Also most of the hotels expect skiing guests from the second weekend in December which is about the time the resort is scheduled to become fully operational.

Talking to a local skier last night, he was more than happy with yesterday's knee deep powder for opening day and said 'what better way to the season?’ I couldn't agree more.   Read more ...

Niseko Now!

Weather conditions: Partly cloudy
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Some happy snow goers out on the mountain yesterday with more heading out to enjoy the conditions this morning. A base temp of -1c and mountain top temp of -5c there should be some great snow on offer again today. Most people had a good time on the Ace#3 double chair following the mountain outlines and then downloaded through the day on the Ace#2 Quad.

A great deal at the moment for all snow lovers, 2000 yen per day. Should make it easy to get out there for a few season warm ups.

The systems at the moment are just drifting through and another substantial Low is expected on Monday or Tuesday accompanied by more snowfalls.

Weather conditions: Sun, blue skies

Yesterday was a really good start to the season for the resort with a full car park and over 3300 people out there on the slopes of Kagura and Mitsumata enjoying the good conditions out there right from day one.

Blue skies and sun this morning with hardly a cloud to be found. As it stands it is looking likely that next week will be a mix of sun cloud and maybe rain (hopefully snow up high). Today it will rise to around 8 degrees. All in all a great day to be out on the Kagura slopes....   Read more ...

It's a fine day up in Naeba today with the sun out and some hazy blue skies. Yesterday a fair few people were out on the slopes that are open (unchanged today) and Kagura also saw a busy opening day with well over 3000 people using the Mitsumata Ropeway to get up there.

It should be a good day to be out there today with cold temperatures overnight and the good weather.   Read more ...
