We did get some snow last night and into this morning but it is not heavy snow - more on and off with it snowing at times and then stopping for a while. The forecast is telling us that it will probably clear up as well fairly soon.

Kagura hopes to be fully open for the day but may well close a lift or two due to strong winds, and the same applies for the top part of Naeba (it's best to ask them directly if you are heading up there to get the very latest).

It lools like there will probably be no snowfall for New Years Day, and it may well be a fine day.

Hope you have a great New Years Eve wherever you decide to be!   Read more ...

The snow is back again this morning with another 10cm or so overnight, but it isn't heavy snow and visibility not too bad so decent conditions to be out in. It also looks likely to clear up later on in the day.

Look out for some extensive nighta for the next few nights (Sun Valley, Maruike, Mammoth, Ichinose Family, Ichinose Diamond, Yakebitaiyama and Kumanoyu) and New Years Eve events around the area today and tonight.   Read more ...

Weather conditions: Snowing

Light snow continued through much of yesterday with only about 5-10cm falling since last report. Things cleared up through the night and the temperature plummeted to -19 in Kutchan making for a rather fresh start to the last day of the year.

As I'm writing this report though large feathery flakes have started drifting down into the village. Yesterdays snow wasn't enough to fill in the tracks but the intrepid should still be able to find a few freshies if they know where to look.

Hope everyone enjoys their new year's celebrations this evening and good luck for 2006. My new year's resolution is to get more skiing time on the mountain!

A snowy day...again; now and then we get small breaks in the low overcast cloud cover and the sun peeps through. Plenty of people about today but still not exactly packed everywhere. If the weather swings more towards the breaks in cloud cover then it will become an brilliant day for snow sports but also for the poor beggers who have to climb up on roofs and shovel the stuff off all day. Right now the sun is poking through and warming us nicely and last nights snow is still there to carve up. Lovely.   Read more ...

New Years EVE end of the day report. Sorry to all who count on us for the morning snow report to help them make decisions as to where the best snow may be. Our server was down today and the report obviously did not make it to you.

It was a pretty warm day with good visibility up there. We had a low elevation cloud layer hanging around from about 1500m to 1700m, but for those of you who made it above that, were treated to a truly spectacular view of the mountain tops. There was some new snow on the top of Happo this morning from yesterday but due to the warm temps it was pretty heavy. Could still find some fluffier powder deep in the trees, but getting pretty tracked out.

Apologies again for the void in our snow report and we'll be back tomorrow, the first day of the new year, with a CRACK 'O' NOONERS REPORT!


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