Niseko Now!

Friday 6th November 2015, 10:19am
Weather conditions: Cloudy for now
New snowfall: 0cm
Snow depth: 0cm
Good morning from Hirafu.

We have had some fine and rather warm weather conditions over the last few days here, but this morning it is a cloudy start to the day.

Hopefully we might get to see sunnier conditions later on in the day today and tomorrow as well, though it looks like it should remain fairly chilly.

Looks like rain is due as we enter next week but some snowfall likely mixed in there as well at least in higher elevations. Fingers crossed!

Winter season preparations continue apace. Sometimes with all the seemingly last minue panic before things open for winter, you wonder if folk somehow forget when winter is due to start and they are somehow surprised when it starts creeping up on them! Then again, there's always things to do that pop up though... good luck everyone - we need everything to be ready when those lifts start!

Have a good weekend and see you next week.


Planned opening dates for the Niseko resorts:

Niseko Grand Hirafu: Saturday 21st November
Niseko Annupuri: Saturday 28th November
Niseko Village: Tuesday 1st December
Niseko HANAZONO: Saturday 5th December

Nighta should be starting on Saturday 12th December   Read more ...

Hello and welcome back to Madarao Now for the 2015-2016.

This is just me checking in to welcome you back after a hot summer (cooler up here!) and a really beautiful autumn. And... the first snows of the season have been seen on nearby Mt Myoko as well - check out the beautiful photo below.

I'll be here each day of the snow season bringing you all the snowy news from Madarao. Hopefully once again there will be huge amounts of it to report!

The season is due to start at Madarao on Friday 18th December.

I'll be posting some updates before then with news of the snow and preparations but in the meantime be sure to check out the Madarao Now archives at the bottom of the pages (on the PC version of the site), and also the brand new TRAVEL section that SnowJapan has launched this year:

See you soon!   Read more ...
