Continued snow through the night and it keeps on falling here in Hakuba. We have a reported 90 cms of snow on Happo One's Usagidaira course. Goryu is reporting 70 cms + on Alps Daira Panorama course and Hakuba 47 reports 50 at the top of there gondola. Goryu and Hakuba 47 have their gondolas and one lift each running but are not yet connected so it is riding on one or the other only. Happo One have the gondola and Alpen quad lift running but they are only selling one-time tickets that need to be purchased at the lifts each time you ride them. They are not running as a ski hill as such but only as a lift serice and have not done any grooming. There is nothing to stop you from riding but the runs are not marked nor are obstacles.

Great conditions on Goryu reported yesterday and on Happo as well.

Happo will be grooming as soon as snow depth allows and Goryu and Hakuba 47 are anctious to open other courses and lifts as soon as possible.

Tsugaike, Hakuba Cortina, Hakuba Norikura, Hakuba Iwatake and Hakuba San Alpina are all on standby and plan to open this coming Saturday.

Snow depths will be getting progressively deeper in the alpine terrain above the resorts and mountaineers can expect to see loose snow avalanches and the possibility of slab avalanches is also ever present. Increasing caution at ridge top around cornices and on steep lee facing slope. General caution advised.
