Niseko Now!

Weather conditions: Overcast and snowing lightly
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Merry Xmas!! Santa bought a bit of snow for us last night. We've had about 10-15cm which certainly isn't enough to make for deep riding but it will still be very nice. There's a few lazy flakes coming down at the moment but looking at the weather radar we should expect some decent snowfalls later this afternoon and through tomorrow.

The mountain has been getting into the Xmas spirit with many candles placed in the snow around the resort and more than one santa hat can been seen here an there. Hope everyone has a great Xmas day and enjoys the holidays if you're lucky enough to get them.    Read more ...

Hakuba Now!

Weather conditions: Clear and SUNNY

Merrry Christmas! Finally we have bright sunlight and blue skies here in Hakuba since,...I don't remember when!

No new snow overnight, so the slopes will most likely be beautifully cordoroy groomed, and fairly tracked up powder in the trees, yep! All the powder dogs that were out there yesterday were pretty hungry.

Also, along with the clear skies, came very cool temperatures, -14 deg. at the top of the mountains and -8 at the bottom of Goryu this morning, keep those ears covered.

After one extreme comes another - this morning is bright sunny and blue skies all around. It is a really beautiful start to the day and there are fantastic conditions out there wherever you go.

Have a great day!



The weather stayed good all day with bright blue skies and good conditions all round. It has been on the news that Yuzawa now (officially) has 237cm of snow which is an official record for the month of December. Not a bad start to the season then!

The sunny weather will be gone by tomorrow though with snow clouds forecast to move in again and up 30-40cm of snow forecast for mountain areas overnight.    Read more ...

Ho ho ho, Happy Christmas!

And our present to you today is - very fine weather and excellent conditions out on the slopes of Shiga Kogen. For the first time in a while the clouds have parted and the sun is out in full force. Snow conditions are also excellent so it should be a great day on the snow today - take that camera!

The sun may be out but it is still cold especially early on.

Looks like the snow may well be back tomorrow, so enjoy the fine weather while you can!   Read more ...

Rudolf had better be wearing his sunblock today.   Read more ...
