We are lucky enough to have yet another beautiful day here in Hakuba under clear skies and sun. Mid-week is dead quiet on the slopes so you pretty much have them to yourselves if you head out. Only a week or so left on the tail end of the season so a last chance to get some sunscreen on and ride some spring corn snow.

It's no longer possible to ski to the bottom at Goryu & Happo meaning Gondola trips down from the mountain. As most years 47 still has clean runs to the bottom and should do until closing at the end of Golden Week. The Terrain Parks on Hakuba 47 and Tsugaike are open and in great spring condition.

Avalanche Advisory:

Temperatures are rising and water is freely flowing in the snow pack thus slab avalanches to the ground are a definite possibility. Watch out for those precariously hanging slopes of snow on steep convexing terrain and under glide cracks. Move quickly through areas in terrain trap valley bottoms. There will be general loose wet slides on all slopes as surface snow temperatures rise and due to the snow pack being isothermal, ( all right at 0 degrees from ground to surface) Slides can be very big at this time of year so play smart.

Avalanche Hazard:

Below tree line: Moderate

Tree line: Moderate

Alpine: Considerable
