Weather conditions: Sunny
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
A fine sunny and breezy day again with it warming up a bit by the middle of the day. No snow is expected until later in the week, Thursday. Hardly anyone is around today so if you could get up to Yamabiko you would have the whole mountain to yourself.   Read more ...

It ended up raining all of yesterday at town level, right up until the late hours. We hear though that it was snow falling higher up at Gala, and Kagura is even reporting 10-15cm of new snow. This morning though things have changed - the sun is out early on and although it's quite hazy looking there aren't that many clouds hanging on.   Read more ...

Back to the fine weather conditions this morning with the sun out and good visibility - some fantastic views on offer from the top today.

As mentioned yesterday, some of the areas are now closed for the season but the main bigger areas are still open. Here's what is open as of today - areas at least part open: Giant, Ichinose Family, Ichinose Diamond, Takamagahara, Yakebitaiyama, Okushiga Kogen, Kumanoyu, Yokoteyama, Shibutoge.

Expect some areas, such as Sun Valley, to open up again at weekends.   Read more ...

Niseko Now!

Weather conditions: Cloudy
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Light snow continued thorugh much of yesterday but cleared overnight. Today has been cloudy but at least the wind has abated and the lifts are operational again. From now though the mountian will be operating on a reduced lift service. The Gondola is no longer operating and access to the top of the mountain is only via the Ace #2, King #3 & #4. The top lift at Hanazono is also remaining operational. Most other lifts will be operating for the remainder of the season. None of this is due to lack of snow cover but due to lack of people on the mountain. I advise to head high today where the best snow quality will be found. In the village it is getting slightly above zero every day now and the freeze, thaw conditions means not the best quality snow at lower levels. Up high thoough temps have remained below freezing and there should be some nice wind packed powder.

Things are expected to clear up later with a cold night and sunny start to tomorrow. Then a little more snow should hit the region on Thursday.    Read more ...
