Yuzawa Now!

Thursday 8th December 2005, 8:42am
Weather conditions: Sun, some cloud
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
It's a bit colder this morning with a fair bit of frost around but it's set to get warmer during the daytime, maybe up to around +6 degrees. The sun is out this morning with bright blue skies and some clouds hanging on. See photos added this morning.

Snow is on the weekly forecasts for the region, so let's hope they are right!

OK, so lets go over the resort status. The big news is that in an amazing show of flexibility, the Tashiro part of Kagura is set to open a week early, ie. on this Saturday (10th) and Sunday (11th). It seems that it will be just for the weekend though until they open properly as planned a week later on the 17th. Over at Naeba, from today you can now also ride the "Downhill course" down from Takenokodaira.

Other resorts:

Iwappara >>> they will open just as soon as there is enough snow
GALA Yuzawa >>> currently reporting 85cm, set to (part) open this Saturday (10th)

Another cold night with Kutchan getting down to -16! It's currently clear but snow is forecast to move into the region later in the day. Good snowfalls are forecast over the coming week. So although we can say goodbye to the sun we will defintely welcome some powder.    Read more ...

Shiga Kogen Now!

Weather conditions: Sun
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
We might have been expecting more snow clouds hanging around but that's not what we've got - sun! A really beautiful morning in the region with fantastic views on offer all round. It's cold this morning but will probably warm up a bit as things get going. No real change on the lift operations to report as we continue the wait for more snow.   Read more ...

Clear cold and sunny today with high stratus clouds and plenty of sunshine. No major new snow over night but still a great day to carve it up at Nozawa with plenty of snow to go around and no crowds.   Read more ...

Hakuba Now!

Well, didn't get much snow overnight, but it's snowing now and there's about 2 cm fresh on the ground in the valley. No wind at the moment and poor visibility. Happo now has their Reizen and Panorama courses open with plans to open Skyline & Kita One Lifts on the week end but are unsure Sakka and Nakiyama areas will be open quite yet.
