Weather conditions: Snow
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
About 30-40cm of new snow overnight and it is still coming down.

It isn't as windy today but still very cold - but currently the snow is not so strong and visibility certainly better than it was yesterday.

Up at the Kaguea area - Kagura is open up until the Kagura gondola, Tashiro up until the Tashiro No.1 high speed lift, which the Mitsumata area is all open.

Naeba is open today but will be limited operation as they still come to grips with all the snow and make sure things are as safe as possible.

The central section and part of the northern section of Gala is open but the connections to Ishiuchi and Yuzawa Kogen will once more be closed today (as will the entire southern section).   Read more ...

Another very cold start to the day and at the moment light snow is falling. It's not as windy as it has been meaning that conditions out there are a bit more comfortable than they have been - look for more people on the slopes today. Having said that, after the New Year holidays the slopes will by no means be crowded   Read more ...

Weather conditions: Light snow

Heavy snow showers continued through yesterday but eased overnight. This morning it is only snowing very lightly. The best news is that the wind is almost entirely gone and it is really quite cold again.

There should be some great skiing out there today with plenty of fresh tracks and some really deep skiing in protected areas. Currently there are plenty of people in resort but lift queues are still practically nonexistent. Getting into a good restaurant without a booking though is not easy.    Read more ...

Hakuba Now!

Weather conditions: Snowing lightly
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Light snow flurries are a bit of a relief after all the copious amounts of snow that we have received over the last month. The winds have eased off and the visibility is better than it has been on days recent. Temperatures are still relatively cool with -4 in the valley and -10 at the tops of the fields.

Runs are soft groomed and beautiful for crusing with a trace of new snow on top to give a bit of a rooster tail. There is still powder to be found on the sides of the runs.   Read more ...

Nozawa Onsen Now!

Weather conditions: Steady Snowfall
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Light but constant large flakes falling in Nozawa today. Again it is a calm overcast sky with fair to good visibility. Lanterns were hung last night as part of the preparations for the upcoming Fire Festival on the 15th Jan, held every year in Nozawa with great celebration. Not particularly busy up top today; plenty of stashes to go around I expect.   Read more ...

Nozawa Onsen Now!

Thursday 5th January 2006, 21:54pm
Weather conditions: Steady Snowfall
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
UPDATE: Well it has been snowing here aaall day, light but steady large flakes. There are rooftops here with 2-3 meters of snow on top of them, threatening to cave in some older places. Locals are scrambling onto rooftops as often as they can at any hour to try and make some impact on the massive loads. Powder powder everywhere, we have had a very difficult time over the past 4-5 weeks trying to make snow balls, the stuff just won't stick together so much.

INFO: For anyone interested there is a prediction (from Snowforecast) that this coming sunday afternoon and the following mon-day "should" have the sun out, lets hope they are both blue sky powder days, as predicted. I know I will be up there on those days regardless.   Read more ...
