Wow.

There's a lot of fresh snow here in Hakuba. To say the least!

Here's the headlines from the resorts:

Happo-one: 50cm (Usagidaira); 80cm (Kurobishi)
Hakuba 47: 40-80cm
Hakuba Goryu: 20-60cm
Hakuba Cortina: 40-50cm

Tsugaike Kogen busting through (or to) the 3m snow depth mark.
Happo-one adding 50cm to the upper slopes snow depth.

80cm up at Hakuba 47! You could almost say that's... bottomless! ;)

Didn't quite see that coming.

I don't think anyone will have any problems finding some deep powder conditions to play in today. Just be careful!

It does look like Goryu have been 'dealing' with the snow on the upper slopes and so opening later than planned but apart from that there doesn't seem to be any disruption and thankfully there isn't enough wind to cause any issues with lifts. It's not even really that cold this morning.

Snow clouds forecast to ease later today and then we might get to see some sun tomorrow.

Fantastic.
