Good morning from Hakuba and an early report is required today ---- too early for some ski area info updates, but at least in terms of weather things should be settled today.

Unfortunately Happo-one didn't get to open yesterday due to the wind and it seems there was something going on at Goryu (I was away for the day so don't know the details).

It remained cloudy for the most part. There was a noticeable wind, and then some unwelcome rain making another appearance in the afternoon (enough of that already!), before clearing a bit before it went dark.

On to this morning and it is looking like it'll be a fine and sunny day. And warmer too. At last!

Tomorrow is the last day of the season for Hakuba 47 and Hakuba Goryu; Happo-one still plans to continue through Sunday.

Total snowfall accumulation on upper areas:

TOTAL SNOWFALL ACCUMULATION SO FAR (UPPER AREAS)
* Numbers reported by ski areas

Hakuba 47832cm
Hakuba Cortina915cm
Hakuba Goryu1083cm
Hakuba Happo-one867cm
Tsugaike Kogen985cm


The 'total snowfall accumulation' data shown in the table is the total amount of snowfall that the ski areas have themselves reported from 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.
