Hakuba Now!

Sunday 9th April 2006, 9:10am
Weather conditions: Overcast
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Snowed pretty much all day yesterday and our colleagues reported spots on the hill where it was 40cm deep. The snow is heavier than your usual powder and has tinge of yellow/brown to it....supposedly from the deserts of China? Well we will take any snow in any form at this stage.

Morning turns should be nice and soft. Currently the upper slopes are shrouded in cloud so visibility is limited. Proceed with caution in steeper off-piste terrain. This thick heavy snow will be sliding for sure.

Avalanche Danger is moderate/high:

Natural avalanches possible.
Human triggered avalanches likely.
Use caution in steeper terain. Instabilities in surface snow.
Take care as the new snow may not bond well with upper layer.   Read more ...

After a lot of rain in the region overnight, there was some light snow early this morning. Kagura are reporting that they got 20-30cm of new snow once more since yesterday - though the official snow depth numbers don't seem to have changed - can't be bad!

All of the forecasts are saying that things should clear up later on in the day.   Read more ...

Nozawa Onsen Now!

Weather conditions: Snow this morning fine this afternoon
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Seems like only the Yamabiko area chairs are operational again today. Apparently it snowed up top all last night and this morning which accounts for the jump in depth. Very few people around and generally quiet mild weather conditions. Lets hope these minor dumps keep coming every now and then to top things up.   Read more ...
