Japan - Yamanashi: latest snow conditions round-up

JAPAN REPORT There have been more snow flurries on high peaks across Japan as temperatures cool as autumn progresses. Niseko posted images of snow-cover down to about mid-mountain as did Hakuba, at the weekend. Myoko and Furano also posted snowy upper mountain pics and there has been an online video of keen skiers hitting a slope barely covered by snow.

On Hokkaido, daytime highs have been closer to 10C in the mountains and overnight lows at freezing or a degree or two below. So it's looking promising for the main season start now about a month away. The only area known to have started its season already is a small centre in China's Altay prefecture.
