Niseko Now!

Friday 9th December 2005, 8:35am
Weather conditions: Partly Cloudy
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Milder air and cloud moved in overnight and we had a dusting of new snow. This morning has cleared a little but the snow is forecast to return later in the day with reasonably heavy falls over the weekend. This weekend should see the first decent influx of skiers from overseas.    Read more ...

Hakuba Now!

Friday 9th December 2005, 8:35am
Weather conditions: Overcast & snowing
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --

We received 5 cm in the valley and just over 15 cm at the top of the Happo Gondola over night. The wind is light from the North and temperatures are mild. We are having some amazing days here in the Hakuba valley and surrounding resorts. Tomorrow is looking as if the skies may part for a bit while a high pressure system moves through over central Japan. It will continue to snow pre this event and should leave us with at least another 20 cm of fresh for tomorrow morning. Most resorts will be open in Hakuba tomorrow and the big hills will be continually opening more and more lifts to no doubt have full operation by the 17th.

Yuzawa Now!

Friday 9th December 2005, 8:59am
Weather conditions: Sun, cloud
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
The forecast told us to expect a bit of snow this morning and we were all excited but.... it's another of those bright, blue sunny days early on here. Clouds looking north towards Niigata are more promising though and we're hoping they will move in by the end of the day. We'll give you another update later on with the latest.

Gala Yuzawa will open up part of their slopes tomorrow - all of the central part and part of the northern area (to the right as you look at the resort) will be open, with Gala reporting 85cm of snow up there.

At Naeba from tomorrow "Number 3 gelende" will open and on Saturday night they will be open for nighta for the first time.   Read more ...

Shiga Kogen Now!

Friday 9th December 2005, 9:51am
Weather conditions: Sun, some cloud
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
No new snowfall overnight and another very sunny start to the day - the forecasts are certainly wrong today! Cold again early on but it will warm up a bit during the day.

The good news is there seems to be another cold front moving in and we can hope for some decent snowfall over the weekend and hopefully more lifts opening up.   Read more ...

Nozawa Onsen Now!

Friday 9th December 2005, 10:17am
Weather conditions: Clear cold and sunny today with high stratus clouds.
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
A sunny, blue and white average looking sky today (50-50 cloud & sky), very pleasant indeed. Up high conditions are fine for a great days ski or 'boarding with minimal wind and good visibility. Plenty of untouched areas to mess with and carve up with few skiers around. Scattered to heavy snowfall predicted for the next few days by most sources so look for an update later today/tonight and see how the sky changes.   Read more ...
