More snow throughout yesterday but it cleared a little last night. This morning it is snowing again and there will be fresh turns in bottomless pow across the entire mountain. And it just so happens that today is my day off work! Ahh life is good...

The resort is really starting to fill up with hundreds of people arriving just yesterday. This influx was partly due to one of new JAL flights direct from Sydney to Sapporo. JAL are only trialling these flights this season but I'd say plenty of Aussies will be happy if they become a permanent fixture.

It will start to be difficult to get a seat at many of the more popular restaurants around the village without a prior booking. People should be aware there is a free night bus to and from Kutchan where there are plenty of excellent restaurants.

Snowing steadily with a breeze in unprotected spots, low clouds. Nozawa residents are waiting for a sunny break in the weather to get some serious shovelling done, especially on rooftops.   Read more ...

Weather conditions: Cloudy partly sunny\r\n
New snowfall: --

Looks like another beautiful clear day! Few and far between, so better head out there and get some. Cool temperatures up top, -10 deg. at 830 am this morning, but should be warming up in sun exposed areas fairly quickly. Looks like all lifts should be up and running today as well.

Natural and human triggered avalanches likely. Travel in Avalanche terrain is not recommended.

Weather conditions: Light snow, cloud
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Since last night the snow has not been as strong as it has been recently, but it is still snowing. The winds have pretty much died down at town level as well and so things all seem that much 'calmer' today after the huge snowfalls of recent days (and weeks). It is still snowing though and is forecast to for the rest of the day. For the first time in a while though the forecast for tomorrow is just cloud!

It's still windy up top though and so a few lifts at Kagura are still not moving early on this morning (including the top Kagura quad). The south part of Gala looks set to be closed until into January.   Read more ...

Shiga Kogen Now!

The forecast for this morning was for clear skies, but it started off cloudy and snow still coming down - though it has been lighter snow than of recent days and there is only a slight wind and so conditions out on the slopes have been much kinder today, and more people have been out trying out the snow.... which is of a very good condition.

Shibutoge over the top of Yokoteyama is now reporting 370cm of snow up there.   Read more ...
