Hello from... Matsumoto.

Doh!

But I have friends in Hakuba and with the help of one of those along with webcams, here's the report.

The most snow being reported this morning is 10cm from the upper areas of Hakuba 47. Just a little snow down below and light snow falling this morning.

Forecasts seem to be showing more of the same the next few days with perhaps some special appearances by The Sun, with a return to some decent snowfall coming from around Thursday. The encouraging pattern to the weather this season continues.

And here is the (unchanged) table for this morning:

TOTAL SNOWFALL ACCUMULATION SO FAR (UPPER AREAS)

Hakuba 47320cm
Hakuba Cortina420cm
Hakuba Goryu427cm
Hakuba Happo-one403cm
Hakuba Norikura Onsen250cm
Tsugaike Kogen389cm

The 'total snowfall accumulation' data shown in the table on this page (above) is the total amount of snowfall that the ski areas have themselves reported from the on the upper areas of their resort since the beginning of the season. We manually check and update this official data just before we publish each Hakuba Now report. Any odd-looking numbers are due to the source data. We have no control over the data. Just to be extra clear, unlike our own ‘observed snowfall’ data from base that we show at the top of each report, the data in the table is not an independent observation by SnowJapan.
