@Markymark29, where there's a will there's a way. I split my chin open on 2nd day at hakkoda, needed to find a hospital urgently to get it stiched up, nearest was 1 hour away in aomori. Would seem like an impossible predicament given how isolated we were and the language barrier but got it done. The Japanese are so friendly and helpful that language to a certain extent doesn't matter.
Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name.

@Gämsbock, yes fair point if you want some social. Re less crowded places Hakkoda for example is very much an off the beaten track location, wasn't at all busy when I went in early Feb 2015 and gets sh*t loads of snow. Recommended. http://www.powderhounds.com/Japan/Honshu/Hakkoda.aspx

Surely it's not all that difficult to enjoy the full JaPow experience without paying stupid money for guides etc??? For example - Hakkoda - all of the mountain is uncrowded off piste. Yes you need a guide for the backside but the frontside area is huge and not difficult to explore - all routes lead back to the cable car. Stay at the ultra traditional Sukuyu Onsen for the authentic Japanese experience. Niseko Moiwa - avoid the Niseko crowds and benefit from the easy accessibile gated off piste. Again route finding is very easy. Head over to Annupuri on a quieter day (if there is one...) for more gated off piste and bigger vertical. All very straightforward. This came in at only just over £1500 in Feb 2015 for 2 weeks for flights/accomm/transport/everything (admittedly with a better exchange rate). You can of course hire a guide for a day or 2 if you feel it is necessary.
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

Saturday morning was the best alpine conditions I'd experienced all season. In nearly May! 30cm+ of cold dry powder and bluebird skies...stunning. Had to watch out for sharks though and powder stress was fairly high. Yesterday almost as good...bluebird again, fantastic snow all over the mountain loads of which still untracked. Deserted on the Swiss side in the afternoon. Today frustratingly looks like it is going to start dumping in the afternoon down to resort level...in May...but just as everything shuts down for the season. Can't complain though, crazy good conditions for the time of year. January 2018 should be a great time to visit. My 2 visits here have been superb - last one was in January and was fine for queues and crowds. Fantastic resort.

@RetroBod, it was snowing heavily on the kaprun glacier today from the first lift station up. Very strong wind at the top. Fairly busy in spite of the inclement weather. Tomorrow could be good if the wind doesn't ruin it, but reckon it will be rammed as the rain was destroying what was left of the snow below 2000m at the neighbouring resorts, so the whole world and their dogs will probably go to kaprun, especially if the sun makes an appearance.

There does seem to be disparity between those very nice looking charts and snowforecast/bergfex etc which are predicting only a dribble within the reliable timeframe for eastern Austrian resorts. @nozawaonsen, @snowheads68, what is the current GFS thinking on when the majority of the snow in those charts above is likely to fall?

@horgand I would recommend my trip 2 years ago which was internal flight to Aomori, 3 days at Hakkoda staying at the ultra traditional Sukayu Onsen, then train from Aomori through the Seikan tunnel to whichever Hokkaido resort takes your fancy. We went to Niseko Moiwa which was great. Niseko itself ranked a tad too high on the powderstressometer though. Check out resort reviews on Powerderhounds. Not difficult and probably cheaper to DIY it rather than selling your soul to a tour operator.

But ECMWF is less optimistic I think? I have the option of a week in Obertauern or a surf trip in sunnier climes for 11-18 March. Keen for the former but only if there'll be a significant covering of fresh, so I'd be grateful for the thoughts of the gurus on what weather is likely in the next 10 days or so for the Eastern Alps, before I decide which flights to book. Looks even more uncertain than normal at the moment beyond a couple of days out.

@kesone1 great report. I'm considering a 2 centre Honshu trip for next year. Would you recommend Hakuba and Myoko as bases? Should Nozawa be on the list of resorts to visit, either for day trips or as a base? Interesting comments about Hokkaido. Niseko I thought had good terrain but excessive powder stress, though staying at Moiwa was a result from that point of view, and I wasn't overly impressed with Rusutsu. Kiroro looks like it has a great snow record but otherwise I'm not desperate to rush back to the north island with the associated faff of getting there. Honshu looks very appealing in terms of variety of resorts and terrain, but Hokkaido supposedly gets more and better snow...hmmm. Hakkoda yes definitely recommended! Great memories of the area immediately to skiers right of the cable car through the snow ghosts...mmmm...and the Sukayu Onsen, er, onsen :D

Backcountry riding is permitted by the ski patrol, except in one zone where it previously avalanched onto the ski area.

Our holiday: Part of a 10 day trip to Georgia followed by 5 days in Mestia/Tetnuldi. I travelled with my usual 2 snowboarding mates. We are fairly experienced powder-hungry riders who have explored the European Alps extensively and are now looking for new challenges around the world, in addition to our frequent alpine visits. Basics : Mestia is in the middle of nowhere. High up in the Svaneti valley, 140km from the nearest town Zugdidi, 3-4 hours away along a tortuous mountain road. Access from Tbilisi is therefore lengthy and complicated however there is a scheduled flight service operated by http://vanillasky.ge, a Georgian tour operator based in Tbilisi, departing from a small airfield at Natakhtari 20km north of the city. Flight time to Mestia is 50 minutes and very spectacular. However this shouldn't be relied upon, especially if travelling with skis/snowboards, as 50%+ of flights are cancelled in the winter due to weather conditions, and maximum weight allowance per person including hand luggage is 15 kg. We were very lucky for our trip out arriving just before the weather closed in, and they let us on with more than 15kg each because the plane was only half full. But for the return trip the flight was cancelled so we had to come back via taxi to Zugdidi then night train to Tbilisi. Tetnuldi is a further 30-40 minute taxi journey up the valley along a very poor quality road from Mestia. It must be one of if not the most isolated venues in the world for a modern ski resort to be developed which has pretensions of attracting international customers. Totally bonkers given the poor access and distance from civilisation. Lift system : 2 fast 6 seaters to the top and 1 fixed grip quad to the left from the middle station. Unfortunately the top lift remained closed during our visit, presumably due to avalanche danger from the new snow that was wind-loaded above the massive north-west face below it. (see pics) The piste map shows plans for 12 lifts in total, including 4 up from the valley. Will be amazing if/when it happens, but don't know how they will ever make a profit, unless they have plans to build a new international airport in the valley as well :~/ Very quiet during our visit. No more than 50 people on the hill on powder day Friday, maybe 150-200 on the Saturday. The terrain : The first lift from the base accesses a mellow blue gradient piste. The terrain around the fixed grip quad to the left is more interesting, with some good off-piste. But without the top lift operational it was all slightly limited. Gutting not being able to get up there! Stunning views of the surrounding 5000m+ Caucasus peaks. The snow : Masses of snow already in Mestia on arrival (the runway was snow covered :shock:) and it snowed approximately another 30cm during our stay. Very light dry powder immediately after the snow fall - great. The resort : A developing base station with a basic restaurant and very slow service. Nothing else on the hill. Down the valley, Mestia is a charming town steeped in history. Full of ambience and character. Svaneti towers are all over the place dating back centuries. An interesting museum about Svaneti culture and archaelogical findings which is worth visiting if you have the time. Food : Lots of places to eat in Mestia. Georgian food is very tasty but mostly meat and bread/cheese based so stodgy and filling. Not a place for a vegetarian. Accommodation : We stayed in Dodo Japaridze Guesthouse. OK if you like your accommodation "rustic" and your mattresses old soft and springless. There are plenty of other accommodation options in town. Costs: CHEAP. Accommodation B&B £5-10/night. Lift pass £7.50/day. Beer £1/pint. But the return taxi £40/day to/from Mestia adds to the costs. Expensive because the taxi driver stayed in the resort car park all day as it wasn't worth his while to go back down then up again from Mestia! In our case split between 3 so not too bad. Conclusion: Fantastic potential if they build all the lifts. I would love to return if/when they do. Crazy place to develop a modern resort though - how they will ever make it a success is anybody's guess.
And they're a friendly bunch.

Our holiday: Part of a 10 day trip to Georgia preceded by 4 days in Gudauri, then 2 days at Tetnuldi, then transit. We had intended to spend most if not all 4 days of our time in Mestia at Tetnuldi, but weather conditions necessitated 2 days at the local hill Hatzvali, which turned out to be a blessing! I travelled with my usual 2 snowboarding mates. We are fairly experienced powder-hungry riders who have explored the European Alps extensively and are now looking for new challenges around the world, in addition to our frequent alpine visits. Basics : Mestia is in the middle of nowhere. High up in the Svaneti valley, 140km from the nearest town Zugdidi, 3-4 hours away along a tortuous mountain road.

But for the return trip the flight was cancelled so we had to come back via taxi to Zugdidi then night train to Tbilisi. Hatzvali is a 15 minute taxi up the hill from Mestia. The basic infrastructure is installed to have a lift link from the town so maybe this is going to be operational some time in the near future, which would improve significantly convenience of access and remove need for the taxi - also good from an ecological perspective of course. Lift system : 1 fixed grip quad. The piste map shows plans for a new lift to extend up to skier's right of the area. The terrain : Looks like nothing on the map but actually is very extensive if you like off-piste and trees. Everything is below the tree-line so great for stormy weather. 650m of north facing vertical all of a consistent steep gradient - no flat spots. To skiers left are a couple of nice pistes. To skiers right there is a traverse/hike which accesses numerous entry points into the trees. These start off tight but open up very nicely lower down. Great fun in good snow! The traverse seems to go on a long way and we didn't explore all of it. The new lift would make accessing this area much easier. The snow : Masses of snow already in Mestia on arrival (the runway was snow covered :shock:) and it snowed another 10-15cm on our first night. A big improvement compared with the powder starvation we had experienced in Gudauri. The resort : 1 hotel/restaurant at the base of the quad. Looked very nice inside but we didn't eat there. Another restaurant at the top of the quad - didn't go inside - too busy riding the pow! Mestia is a charming town steeped in history. Full of ambience and character. Svaneti towers are all over the place dating back centuries. An interesting museum about Svaneti culture and archaelogical findings which is worth visiting if you have the time. Food : Lots of places to eat in Mestia. Georgian food is very tasty but mostly meat and bread/cheese based so stodgy and filling. Not a place for a vegetarian.

There are plenty of other accommodation options in town. Costs: CHEAP. Accommodation B&B £5-10/night. Lift pass £7.50/day. Beer £1/pint. Conclusion: Hatzvali was a fantastic little area, probably my favourite of the trip. Definitely worth spending a few days in addition to ski-ing at its bigger brother Tetnuldi.

We are fairly experienced powder-hungry riders who have explored the European Alps extensively and are now looking for new challenges around the world, in addition to our frequent alpine visits. Website : http://www.gudauri.info Basics : 2.5 hours north of Tbilisi. Flight from Gatwick via Kiev £240 including ski/snowboard carriage. Taxi from airport was arranged through hotel. Lift system : 1 new gondola, 1 new detachable 6 seater, 1 detachable quad, the rest fixed grip 3 or 4 seat chairs. Quite busy with Russians from just over the border, including some 5-10 minute queues. The piste map shows plans for a new lift to extend up to the top-left of the area. The terrain : Big vertical all above the tree line. Mostly of approx red gradient pitch but some much steeper. 60km quoted piste length, easily covered within a day. Loads of off-piste. Lack of trees would mean no shelter during a storm, but we had 4 days of sunshine and great views. The snow : Disappointing. No significant fresh for over a month. Furthermore the hill faces due south and was sufferering as a result. Pistes very hard packed with some bare patches and no significant powder off-piste. Off-piste : Masses of off-piste but not really of interest due to the lack of powder. The top lift was closed due to lack of snow which significantly reduced off-piste opportunities. The resort : The old "village" is a collection of hotels, a gas station and a supermarket strung along the busy main road to Russia. No real resort ambience. There is a new development of apartments at the bottom of the gondola. Neither locations are buzzing resort/apres venues. Food : A handful of places on the mountain, none particularly special. We had a half board deal so ate each evening in our hotel. Accommodation : Hotel Gudauri Hut. Nice modern room. Food was buffet style and bland. 5 minute walk to the bottom chair lift, ski back to door. Costs: CHEAP. Hotel £40pppn half board. £41 for a 4 day lift pass. Beer £1/pint. Conclusion: Not overly impressed with Gudauri due to the sun baked slopes, lack of trees to offer shelter during any potential snowfall and lack of resort ambience. If you get lucky though just after a dump, could be epic, with big vertical and masses of off-piste.

Top lift stayed closed for our last day :( Now en route back to Blighty. Flight from Mestia was cancelled due to low cloud and snow so had to divert via 4 hour taxi to Zugdidi, the second half in a raging blizzard, then night train to Tbilisi. Definitely the long way round! But a great experience. Fab trip, even though extent of snowboarding was limited by top lift closures in both Gudauri and Tetnuldi, the former due to lack of snow, the latter (I think) due to avalanche danger on the massive north-west face. TRs to follow if/when I find the time and get hold of my mate's pics from his better camera.

Tetnuldi yesterday was great. 20cm fresh overnight and continued snowing all morning. Deserted! Lifties very kindly decided to turn on the bottom 2 chairs when we arrived at 10.30am. Unfortunately the top lift remained closed, but we had great fun in the super light powder lower down. Probably no more than 50 people on the hill all day - we were still scoring fresh tracks on the pistes at 4pm. Flat light made avoiding the humps and bumps in the off-piste terrain a tad tricky, but no complaints. The sun poked its head out at the end of the day to reveal the jaw droppingly stupendous scenery of the surrounding majestic 5000m Caucasus peaks. Looks like it has got its hat on again this morning so camera at the ready. Hope that top lift is open. All good :sH:
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

So to my question: where is there most likely to be good snow from Dec 28th on say??? p.s. this is taking into account current snow on the ground, weather for the next 10 days (blended probability as we move out) and likely mean reversion to some sort of seasonal norms for the period from the 20th on (which usually happens btw). p.p.s. for me for now, (& I am no guru ;) ) , the most likely places for good snow that stick out are North America (unfortunately), Japan is too much of a hike , Norway too bloody cold and dark this time of year, but any suggestions on any hidden gems!?! Georgia https://www.facebook.com/gudauri.georgia.186/posts/105861013239146

Presume you are going for the off-piste? Queues can be extensive there on holiday powder days especially for the lift from the base station, though this may have improved with the installation of the new gondola. Once on the mountain there is so much off-piste terrain it's almost always possible to find fresh tracks after a recent snowfall even on the busiest days. Go.
