20cm+ overnight with more expected through out the day. Visibility is minimal, with increasingly strong winds, especially at the top of the mountain. Hanazono 3 offers densely packed wind deposits. The gondola is moving slowly, as is 6C. More snow needed for the Kogen No 7 chair to start moving.   Read more ...

Nozawa Onsen Now!

Weather conditions: Snow
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Rain yesterday evening here in the village. It has changed into (wet) snow now and a bout 2cm have accumulated. Not too much. The upper slopes got a little more and we hope it that it continues to snow throughout the day .
The steeper slopes like Schneider could definitely use some more white stuff as the soil was partly coming through there yesterday.

Until January 4th there will be night skiing every evening between 5 and 8pm at the Nagasaka slopes.

Last night it started to rain - and continued though most of the night unfortunately. Not good. Happily, it has turned into light snow this morning, but it still must have done some damage to the snow conditions out there especially lower down.

Temperatures around 1 degree now, light winds. We're hoping that the snow will continue and make up for the damage caused by the rain.   Read more ...

Shiga Kogen Now!

Weather conditions: Snow, cloud
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
We did get some snow overnight, but nothing major. Still snowing this morning, and likely to clear up later on this afternoon. It's a cold one, so wrap up well. Slopes still not very crowded, although it will probably get busier from tomorrow for the New Year period.   Read more ...

Hakuba Now!

Tuesday 30th December 2003, 12:32pm
Weather conditions: Cloudy, light snow
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
After running the whole gamut of precipitation (rain, sleet, and snow) at village level, it's currently hovering just below zero and some flakes are fluttering in the breeze.

On the hill, Goryu claim 20cm, but the best snow will be higher up at the top of Happo or beyond. It's been too warm for good snow lower down.

Lots of people out, of course, with the slopes currently in thick cloud. Start at first lifts and hit the onsen by three to avoid the crowds, I'd say.

For New Year's Eve, the locals have arranged an event in an empty building opposite the Tex-Mex restaurant Uncle Stevens. It's just down from the Happo Gondola. The DJs include Kiwi Harri, who some readers may know from the Full Moon Parties held in Minakami, Gunma. Entrance is 1000yen. Most of the bars should be rocking too....   Read more ...
