Niseko Now!

Tuesday 6th May 2008, 9:36am
Weather conditions: --
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
A beautiful sunny start to the last day of the season. Temperatures are average for this time of the year, currently 9 degrees C in the village and 5 degrees C at the top of the resort. Winds are light to moderate allowing all spring lifts to operate.

The snow base is now just 20cm at the top of the resort with only two courses to choose from: the center course and the spring park.

This is the last snow report of the 2007/2008 season. We hope you found the snow reports over the season informative and kept you up to date with the conditions.

Now just 6 months away, we look forward to another great season in 2008/2009 - these Niseko Now reports will resume in the run up to the season. See you then!   Read more ...

Yuzawa Now!

Good morning.

There was some heavy rain in the region last night but this morning that has totally cleared up and there are blue skies all around. It is relatively cool, but looks set to be a fine day.

Today is the last day of the season for Gala Yuzawa, Naeba and Tashiro. From tomorrow, the only resort area open will be Kagura - serviced by the Mitsumata ropeway. Mitsumata Ropeway will be open from 8:30am on weekdays (8am holidays), with the Mitsumata area acting as a connection to the open Kagura area. (The car park will also be free until the end of the season).

We will post a report here tomorrow and then after that a few times a week until the end of the season at Kagura.   Read more ...

Fine weather this morning for the last day of the season in Naeba. There is very little snow left now up there, but somehow the resort has managed to stay open. From tomorrow it will be just the Kagura (Mitsumata) resort that is open, with them hoping to be open until 25th May.

We'll continue to make updates to this Naeba Now! page occasionally, but from now on until the end of the season at Kagura the daily reporting from the Yuzawa area will move over to the Yuzawa Now! report section, so remember to check out that page as well for the latest.   Read more ...

Nozawa Onsen Now!

Weather conditions: --
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
After a fine day it is getting darker now, the lifts have stopped moving for the last day and the season is now officially over in Nozawa. That went quick! Only 6 months or so to wait for the next snow to fall...

In the meantime, Nozawa is still a really nice place to visit when there's no snow and is worth checking out.

Thanks for reading the Nozawa Now reports this season, we hope that you found them to be of use and interesting and enjoyed Nozawa if you were able to visit this season.

We hope you have a great summer and see you in the run up to next season - Nozawa Now will be back with weather reports and news in autumn.   Read more ...
