More of the same today.

A fine morning early on, but looks set to deteriorate later in the day with clouds moving in and a chance of snow later - fingers crossed. Temperatures rising this morning, but going down under again as the day progresses.   Read more ...

Quick update:
The weather changed really fast this morning - it soon became cloudy and at the top of the mountain it was (and still is) foggy. It looks like it's eithern going to rain or snow soon.
There will be a ski race on Challenger slope this weekend and preparations for it have started (it looks like Challenger will be closed from tomorrow on). Let's hope that they will groom Utopia for the weekend - because right now that slope is not good to ski on - strange snow, strange moguls, for the average skier it is horrible to ski down on it, and with Challenger closed on the weekend that leaves you only two choices to get back to Hikage - either Schneider (which looks worse than Utopia) or the beginner's course.
The snow conditions on Kandahar east course were really strange today - it seems that the top and the bottom of the slope had been groomed but somehow they forgot to groom the middle part! So skiing was not good on that slope!    Read more ...

Hakuba Now!

Thursday 26th February 2004, 14:08pm
Weather conditions: Snow, foggy on the hill
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
The snow has arrived with the resorts reporting a decent snowfall on their upper courses. The temperature is hovering just under zero here in the valley, and while its coming down here, it's not really settling.

Higher up the snow is reportedly quite light, but visibility looks to be very poor. The courses are going to be very hard underneath, and they'll no doubt be another nasty ice layer to be wary of if venturing offpiste.

The snow is expected to continue through the night. Warm bluebird conditions are forecast once more for Saturday.   Read more ...
