Nozawa Onsen Now!

Friday 6th February 2004, 8:29am
Weather conditions: Sun
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Today is the picture-postcard day I promised you yesterday (it was beautiful yesterday morning, but soon became cloudy and started to snow around noon, with snowfall continuing until last night). We got about half a meter of new snow, so conditions should be excellent today. So get out and go skiing!   Read more ...

Yuzawa Now!

Friday 6th February 2004, 9:02am
Weather conditions: Snow, cloud (although the sun is out at this moment)
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
The snow did continue on and off and we've got about 30-60cm of new snow in the region, depending on where you are - the Kagura region especially getting a healthy dump of new snow.

This morning the snow continued, and just 20 minutes ago in neighbouring Shiozawa heavy snow was falling, but as this is being written the SUN is out again. Hoping that is just temporary as we are told to expect another 40cm or so today.

Conditions for the weekend should be sweet.   Read more ...

Hakuba Now!

Weather conditions: Clearing up after more snow

Snow depth: --
Another 15cm overnight lower down, with Happo reporting 30cm higher up. It has stopped snowing now in the village, and is starting to clear up. Happo is visible up to the top of the gondola, and the cams suggest Ullr is taking a breather up there too.

Yesterday's snow was a little heavy by Hakuba standards, so it'll probably be riding better today after the cold night air has wicked out the moisture. From the number of people out yesterday, there will still be powder galore. More snow is expected tonight and throughout the weekend.

Various "Mt.6" related contests and events are on at Happo tomorrow, which usually means lots of shouting on the PA system. The Japanese board brand Sobut ( is having a party on Saturday night over at Goryu where they'll be showing their new video and giving away various stuff. You can get the info here (   Read more ...

Changeable weather persists. We had snow this morning on and off and it has generally cleared up this afternoon. More snow forecast for tonight and into tomorrow, but nothing major.

Temperatures are down again, a cold one today. Wrap up well and enjoy the slopes here if you're coming this weekend.    Read more ...
