Snow Report 12 November 2015 - Europe & Japan

November is a month of preparations as the ski resorts in Europe and Japan begin to organise themselves in advance of the first dumps of snow. Skiing is still limited to glaciers in Europe right now, and Japow is some time off. But the dustings on the peaks will soon turn into the occasional good fall to village level.

A little dusting at the end of last month whitened the peaks on Honshu and Hokkaido.

Nothing much to speak of has fallen since, and this weekend looks a bit wet and warm.

Niseko is due to kick off ski area openings in Japan on 21st November, followed by Nozawa Onsen and the top of Kagura on 28th November. Dependent on snow, of course.


Warm conditions across the continent have kept the snow reserved to the peaks and the glaciers.

This weather pattern is expected to continue with sunny mild days in the Alps, so little snow on the horizon for now.
