When is the right time to ski in Japan?

Many of us asked this question before.

A simplified answer would be "Jan, Feb & early March are your best bet in 2010" if you asked me.

However, many of us can't ski in those time due to different reasons. So the question transforms and becomes like:

- Is Dec good for skiing in Hokkaido?
- What about early Dec in Hokkaido?
- How about late March in Nagano?
- Can't I really ski in April/May?
- If I have to go in April, what should be the expectation?

We are all told that weather is difficult to predict (perhaps GTFish can :)). We also notice weather pattern seems to change rapidly in recent years. Therefore the above questions are getting harder and harder to answer.

But we people like comfort feeling. So we hope that someone's past experience may help. If you fall in this category, I suggest you visit the following link:
http://www.snowjapan.com/e/daily/now.php
The Now Report in SnowJapan web site has recorded all past daily snow reports written by locals covering many popular Japanese resorts. You want to know if late March skiing is ok or not in Hokkaido? Check the March 2009 reports. Pay attention to snow depth - this is the basic information you need to know. A good snow depth means a good base. Also check the snow depth at top and # of lifts still open. Those are good indicators. If you want more comfort, check 2008 & 2007 reports. The more information you have, the better judgement you can make - hopefully.

By the way, I notice that experienced skiers around me never ask this kind of question. It is NOT because they had the answer, I guess. Rather, they knew there is no good answer so they don't bother to ask. You want to pretend you are an experienced skier? Don't ask this question ! ;)

Hi SkiToSki,

This answer "Jan, Feb & early March are your best bet in 2010" may be 50/50 correct. I went to Hakuba and Ishiuchi Maruyama in FEB this year. It was warm, rainy. However, it was great in late March. :(

My suggestion are:

1. Quite your job
2. Standby and watch the weather forecast everyday
3. as long as a huge snowfall predicted, buy the ticket and get onbroad
4. find job again after the season

:D:D

You tell me! I was in Hakuba in Feb two years ago and the snow condition was very poor .

The only way to guarantee a good time is exactly like what you said in #2 and #3.

For some lucky people (not you and me), #1 and #4 are not needed at all.

At the end, it is all about your luck.

Who knows what will be next? It is so dull if everything could be predicted. I accept and enjoy all unpredictable events if I have to deal with. :)

I went to Hakuba in Feb 2010. Superb fluffy snow. I guess I was lucky. Plan to go there again in Feb 2011 - will I be lucky again??
