Yuzawa Now!

Weather conditions: Cloudy, sun at times, light snow
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Just a moment ago the sun appeared out of the clouds, but for the most part it is a very cloudy and grey (but fairly bright) morning. No real change in the snow depth numbers.

4 new photos have been added to the gallery this morning, and we'll be bringing you a further update later on in the day.

Update (10 minutes after the above was written):

The sun has disappeared again and there's light snow falling now. It looks like it's going to be one of those days!   Read more ...

Nozawa Onsen Now!

Snow depth: --
It's been snowing here (in Nozawa) since 3:30pm yesterday and still going strong throughout the entire village and mountain area. Wonderful dry powder up at Yamabiko and the very top chair has been open for two days now. A steady breeze with strong gusts in unprotected open areas.   Read more ...

Niseko Now!

Monday 5th December 2005, 8:44am
Weather conditions: Partly Cloudy
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
I have added a number of pictures from yesterday. Last night was clear and cold with a strong temperature inversion as can be seen from the current temperatures. Down in Kutchan it reached -12 this morning. On the mountain cloud is obscuring the summit and there are strong winds up high. The sun and wind of yesterday have packed down the powder and created a crust in some areas. Although isolated pockets of powder may be found I'd say it's a day for some fast cruising down the groomers. A little light snow is expected to come in later in the day and through tomorrow.   Read more ...

New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
The snow has started falling again early on here in Shiga Kogen, with quite a wind at times as well making it feel real cold outside this morning. A few more lifts opening up this morning (Kumanoyu gradually opening up more of its slopes) - expect more as the snow continues to build up.   Read more ...

Hakuba Now!

Monday 5th December 2005, 8:57am
Weather conditions: Overcast and snowing heavily (5cm+/h)
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Well unexpectedly, yet very welcome, we received not 10 cms overnight and not 20 cms --- but 40 cms over night! Yes count 'em 4... 0... C... M...

It continues to dump this morning and the hills have well over a metre of snow on the runs. Between the cloud, falling snow and the definite face shots the visibility is poor this morning. There is not much wind to speak of just a light North Westerly. It will continue to snow through the week so for the weekenders you will have a pleasant surprise.
