Yuzawa Now!

Tuesday 29th April 2008, 9:02am
Weather conditions: Sun
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
It is a fine and sunny morning here in Yuzawa. Once again it got quite chilly overnight, but will warm up to maybe around 20 degrees in the early afternoon. There is just a slight wind.

The resorts that should be open now are open as planned. The weekly forecast says sun and warm weather for the coming week so it looks like we are in for great weather over the Golden Week period.

Today is a national holiday in Japan and so you might expect places to be busier than usual for a weekday.   Read more ...

Hakuba Now!

Tuesday 29th April 2008, 9:08am
Weather conditions: Sunny
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Nice and sunny and warm today in Hakuba. Clear blue skies and light wind will make for very good spring skiing conditions on the hills today. Wax up your board(s) and make the most of the final last few days of the season.

Avalanche Advisory:

Temperatures are rising and water is freely flowing in the snow pack thus slab avalanches to the ground are a definite possibility. Watch out for those precariously hanging slopes of snow on steep convexing terrain and under glide cracks. Move quickly through areas in terrain trap valley bottoms. There will be general loose wet slides on all slopes as surface snow temperatures rise and due to the snow pack being isothermal, ( all right at 0 degrees from ground to surface) Slides can be very big at this time of year so play smart.

Avalanche Hazard:

Below tree line: Moderate

Tree line: Moderate

Alpine: Considerable   Read more ...

Furano Now!

Tuesday 29th April 2008, 9:11am
Weather conditions: Sun, overcast
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
It is a fairly bright but overcast morning here in Furano, with a chance of rain later on in the day. It hasn't been quite as warm these last few, with a high of 15 forecast for today. The forecast for Golden Week is generally fine, sunny weather.

Today is the last day of the 2007/8 ski & snowboard season at Furano with the last of the runs having their last day. After today, the 'green season' will be the reason why people visit Furano - and there's plenty to do in these beautiful surroundings.

We hope you enjoyed these daily reports from Furano this season. Look out for updates on here in the run up to the 2008/9 season.

Have a great summer and see you on the other side.   Read more ...

Weather conditions: Sunny
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
The sun is back out in Niseko after a few not so nice days. Temperatures are on the rise, currently 7degrees C with an expected maximum of 14degrees C in the village.

Winds are moderate, but at this time all spring lifts are in operation. The best skiing will be off the top lift, King#4 which was closed due to strong winds yesterday.

With golden week started there is just one week left before the resort closes for the season, the forecast is looking good with a rise in temperatures and more sunshine on the way.
