The snow has returned! Up to 20-25cm in places at 47 this morning. Visibility is very poor above the gondola top station, and some snow is still coming down. The halfpipe there has also been reshaped.

Hakuba hit the headlines yesterday when mid-afternoon TV announced that there had been a "large avalanche" in the backcountry above Happo and that two snowboarders were missing. A police helicopter was scrambled, but the searchers came to the eventual conclusion that no-one must have been buried. The local paper today reports that a witness saw one of two snowboarders trigger the slide, but that the avalanche itself was only 10-15cm deep, so that in the absence of other dangers it would not have been so difficult to ride it out to the side. It is not clear why the alarm was raised.
