The latest Hakuba Now report can be found here

Goryu ski patrol are reporting 10cms down on Iimori and 20 cms up top but this doesn't correspond with the 20-30 cms on top of cars in Echoland this morning. Compare this to Happo patrol who measured 50-60 cms of snow last night. Winds at this point do not seem too bad...there'll be powder albeit a little wet and heavy and plenty of it..get on the skifield and rip it up...

Backcountry advisory update:

Huge amounts of heavy wet snow overnight has pushed up the avalanche danger scale. With the new snow sitting on the sun crust from yesterday and ice layer from the high winds it is quite likely on steep sun-facing aspects for natural triggered avalanches to occur and even on moderate slope angles human triggered slides are probable. Travel in the back country is NOT advised today.

Avalanche Danger:

Below Tree Line: Considerable

Tree Line: Considerable

Alpine: High
