Good morning.

Welcome back to Hakuba Now on SnowJapan.

How was your summer? I spent some of it here in Hakuba and some of it away. Summer didn’t bring us typical summer weather conditions this year, being rather wetter than usual. Let’s hope that we can get through all the ‘wet’, and that the upcoming winter will be very much ‘dry’... and powdery of course!

I’m glad to be back, all revved up and ready to report to you from Hakuba every day once again and I hope that I’ll be able to bring you lots of positive snow news. An early good start to the season would be a perfect start.

First up, here’s are the latest planned resorts opening dates:

Thursday 23rd November 2017
Hakuba Happo-one
Tsugaike Kogen

Late November 2017
Hakuba 47
Hakuba Goryu

Friday 15th December 2017
Hakuba Iwatake Snow Field

Saturday 16th December 2017
Hakuba Cortina
Hakuba Valley Kashimayari

Mid December 2017
Hakuba Norikura Onsen
Hakuba Sanosaka

In ski resort news, the main thing I can report is that this season Hakuba Sanosaka will not be part of the joint ‘Hakuba Valley’ ticket deal. There were various rumours going around about Sanosaka over summer… it will be opening but it looks like operations will be somewhat scaled down with just three lifts (Number 2 quad lift, Number 3 quad lift, Number 6 pair lift) scheduled to be operating. The ‘Hakuba Valley’ lift ticket prices for the 2017-2018 season have been updated on each of the 9 ski resort pages on SnowJapan.

In snow news, we have had some mountain snowfall already at times 20cm and more at higher elevations. The snow-capped mountain tops are looking lovely today. Check out the Happo webcam images below from earlier this morning.

Everyone is in pre-season ‘panic’ mode. Don’t worry, nothing to be concerned about - this is the norm! No matter how much time we sometimes seem to have, there always seems to be mad rushing about going on in the run up to the season starting. All part of the pattern, part of the fun.

Some of the official information sources are still not updated for the 2017-2018 season which, if I wasn’t used to being here, would seem odd. The ski resort pages on SnowJapan have generally been updated but will be updated further over the coming few weeks.

Hakuba Now will be updated daily once the ski lifts start operating, and I’ll be making some posts before then with news of snow. If you want more pre-season reading and info on how previous early seasons went, you can check the archive Hakuba Now reports using the links lower down this page.

That’s it for me for today. Next update next coming next week...
