Yuzawa Now!

Friday 26th December 2003, 9:09am
Weather conditions: Sun
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Yesterday was a beautiful day in Yuzawa - not a cloud around. And most of the resorts weren't busy at all. The snow was supposed to still be good at Kagura, but down at town level it was getting icy, far from best conditions.

Overnight, there was really heavy rain for quite a while, and the heavy rain was still coming down early this morning. The slopes - especially lower ones - will not be good today after all that rain.....

But the good news is that thankfully it has turned into snow, and snow is coming down nicely at the moment. The forecast is telling us to expect quite a bit of snow this weekend.

New photo added below.

We'll keep you posted with a further update to this page later today.    Read more ...

Niseko Now!

Friday 26th December 2003, 9:14am
Weather conditions: Cloudy
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
High winds last night brought a good snowfall, especially on the higher runs. Wind deposited snow on the Hanazono course offer the deepest turns. The snow has stopped in the village, but continues to fall up the mountain. The last of the bamboo grass is being pressed out of sight.

Visibility is poor above the gondola, with snow continuing to fall. Snow is expected today and tomorrow.   Read more ...

Shiga Kogen Now!

Friday 26th December 2003, 10:34am
Weather conditions: Snow
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Snow falling this morning, and talk of heavy snowfall tonight and into tomorrow. Just how much remains to be seen, but some of the slopes are in need of a topup after a number of days without new snow. If we get a good snowfall tonight, conditions for the weekend should be very good.   Read more ...

Hakuba Now!

Friday 26th December 2003, 11:50am
Weather conditions: A storm is a comin'
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
After several hours of drizzle last night, it has started snowing gently at village level. The temperature down here is still around zero but is on the way down and everyone expects (nay, demands!) a big snowfall tonight. Tsugaike say it will be "honkakuteki".

As for current conditions, I'd wager it being very icy up there so sharp edges are a must. People on the hill said it was pretty much empty up there yesterday.
