Niseko Now!

Sunday 2nd December 2007, 7:23am
Weather conditions: cloudy
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
The awesome snowfall last night will leave us with some fantastic skiing today and the snow should continue (although not in the same quantity) with the low upon us. Temperatures today are -4/0 and the wind continues a little stronger to the west.

The lifts are only open until 3:20 or 3:30pm today so make sure you know and listen as to what's closing when in the afternoon so you don't get stuck. Skiing all the way down the mountain is closed so downloading from the ace quad #2 or the gondola are the only options.
The King Bell and Ace Hill huts are now open as well.

The village is coming alive and every night more restaurants are opening up but be sure to ask if something is open for dinner or lunch as the hours are still a little irregular as business settle in with the snow.

Weather conditions: Sun
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
After a fine day yesterday - until the evening when we got some fairly heavy rain for a shirt while - it is sunny once more this morning and hardly a cloud to be seen (so much for the forecast yesterday!)

There's a fair bit of rain (or possiby snow) lined up in the coming week, especially around Wednesday, so fingers crossed there.   Read more ...

Hakuba Now!

Weather conditions: Clear skies with higher clouds above 2000m
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Another sunny day here in Hakuba, some clouds but mainly blue skies and clear views to the peaks today. About 5cm of new snow atop the upper runs overnight as we had light rain in the valley last night. Still good skiing to be had on the upper runs of the resorts that are open, and should be a good day to take in the scenic views while riding.
