Weather conditions: Cloud, fair > rain/snow later?
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
No new snow overnight and a fairly mild start to the day with dark clouds hanging around early on. The forecast tells us that we might expect rain turning into snow later on, but at present nothing is coming down.... so fingers crossed it will be snow when it does start later on, but we'll be needing temperatures to drop for that to happen.    Read more ...

Nozawa Onsen Now!

Weather conditions: Rain
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
It's raining here in Nozawa, even up in the ski area. As it is also quite windy at the top of the mountain, some lifts are closed (Nagasak Gondola, Uenotaira lifts, Yamabiko lifts are not operating today). Not a good day for skiing at all! But the ski area is nevertheless crowded. It's a great day for going to one of the many hot springs here in Nozawa.    Read more ...

It's definitely not a good day to hit the slopes today but if you still want to, you can enjoy the rain on Kandahar east course in the afternoon. Challenger course remains closed due to a competition there.    Read more ...

Niseko Now!

Sunday 29th February 2004, 10:52am
Weather conditions: Cloud and rain
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Rain last night in the village. Snow fell on the mountain but not enough to fill in any tracks. The temperature in the village is above freezing, and the mountain is foggy.

The gondola is running at reduced speed, and the snow is heavy.


Evening update:

Air temperature dropped mid afternoon, refreezing everything and making conditions very fast and hard underfoot. Sharp edges a must! This evening, fresh snow has started to fall making night skiing well worth the trip. Wind remains slight from the North-west, but is expected to increase overnight.   Read more ...

Hakuba Now!

Weather conditions: Rain
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Washout conditions I'm afraid today as sleet first thing soon turned to rain all the way up the mountain. It's cleared up off to the east, but is still drizzling lower down. The tops of the resorts are now just starting to poke through above the clouds.

Lower temps and more snow expected this week though! Don't give up yet!!   Read more ...
