Naeba Now!

Thursday 25th November 2010, 9:49am
Weather conditions: Cloud
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
So it is true - as of a short while ago, Kagura is officially open for the season. Just a 600m run on the main Kagura course, helped along in a bit part by artificial snow.

It's a fine fine morning as well with lots of blue sky and just some cloud. Still no real decent snowfall on the weekly forecast with relatively mild temperatures and some fine (if you like sun) weather. Look out for colder conditions early in the week.   Read more ...

Nozawa Onsen Now!

Weather conditions: Sun, cloud
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
More fine weather today with the sun out and blue skies.... and not really much snow left up on the mountain unfortunately. Even up top now on the Yamabiko slopes there's only patchy snow left - certainly not enough to get some turns on. With no real snowfall forecast for over the next six days, other than perhaps a few light snow showers tomorrow and Sunday at higher levels, the resort has announced that it is going to have to delay opening again for another week. They were of course hoping to open this Saturday (27th), but that's just not going to happen unfortunately.

It is a lovely day today though and we can probably expect a high temperature of around 11 degrees this afternoon.   Read more ...

Zao Now!

Thursday 25th November 2010, 11:49am
Weather conditions: Sun, cloud
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
It is another fine clear day here in Zao. The ropeways are all operating and taking people up high on the mountain but unfortunately not yet for sliding down again on snow. Unfortunately most of the snow up there has now gone.

Looks like we might get some very cold temperatures along with strong winds and hopefully some snowfall around Sunday evening into Monday, though perhaps not the kind of snowfall we would need to get the season kicking off.

The official opening ceremony for the resort will be held on Saturday 4th December, though the lifts will open to skiers and snowboarders earlier if the weather co-operates and we get that snow!   Read more ...

Yuzawa Now!

Thursday 25th November 2010, 16:40pm
Weather conditions: Cloud, sun
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Today was officially the first day of the season in Yuzawa, as Kagura did indeed open today with one run of about 600m in length open. It has been a fine sunny day for the most part, with some cloud, and fairly mild with a top temperature of around 12 degrees this afternoon.

The week long forecast isn't showing much promise either really right now with a mixture of fine days and cloudy days and the chance of some sprinklings of snow at higher levels, but nothing significant. It looks like it should really get colder come Sunday/Monday though.   Read more ...
