It started raining yesterday afternoon and continued until the evening. Especially in the village a lot of snow has melted and it looks more like spring than winter.
Right now it is cloudy in the village and very foggy in the upper parts of the ski area. Temperatures are again very mild. According to the weather forecast, it is supposed to snow again today. Let's hope so! We really need new snow!   Read more ...

Bad news last night as it started to RAIN. We don't like rain. :( Temperatures rose to around 8 degrees at town level as well yesterday afternoon, so it was very mild.

Anyway, this morning it was raining lightly, with very wet snow higher up the mountains. At the moment it seems to have stopped.

Resorts have been told to expect up to 20cm of snow before opening time tomorrow, so lets hope they are right - we could certainly do with a fresh top-up now after the last few days.   Read more ...

Temperatures have dropped again since yesterday but currently cloud and very light snow falling. It is still mild for the time of year, and even though conditions out there are not bad, we could do with some new cms to bring us back up to expected levels.   Read more ...

Hakuba Now!

Tuesday 3rd February 2004, 12:40pm
Weather conditions: Foggy, chance of light snow
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
After an evening of rain lower down, conditions aren't so good out there now. It's hovering around zero outside and is still quite foggy higher. A few cm of heavy snow are said to have fallen up there, but it's maybe best to give it a miss today.

The good news is that the incoming cold front looks like it's going to freeze it all and put lots of fresh stuff on top. Good news#2 is that tickets are half price at Happo on Friday. It's their fire festival in the evening which involves watching various people slide down Nakiyama, some of them through a rather unimpressive hoop of fire. Don't go expecting a traditional fire festival like Nozawa or Kurama or you'll surely be disappointed. There is some of the local sake going for free, but get in quick if you want some.   Read more ...
