Temperatures were very chilly overnight with the sky opening up to create a beautiful full moon night. This cooling has made the snow very cripy and is definately helping to create a bomber base. Where the powder remains it has become even lighter and enticing indeed. The sky is still clear today and temps heve warmed in the valley and freezing level has risen to 1600 metres. Wind remains light and has switched direction and is coming from the South West.

Happo will be grooming as soon as snow depth allows and Goryu and Hakuba 47 are grooming and anxious to open other courses and lifts as soon as possible. All were busily making snow last night.

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

AVALANCHE ADVISARY:

3 major fracture lines approximately 2 metres deep could be seen this morning on Shirouma Dake in at the top of Hakuba Sawa bowl, Hakuba Shakushi Dake North ridge and Goryu dake. All fractures are on the South Eastern aspect, reacent lee slopes, that were heavily loaded over the last 3 days. Most probably came down with the first light this morning. Overnight there was a surface frost that formed with the clear cool weather that may cause problems on shaded aspects come the next snow fall and the warm solar radiation of today will no doubt cause a sun crust to form on southerly aspects that may also cause instability in the consecutive snow falls. Watch out around rocky outcrops during early season as there will be a lot of instability around these areas due to large temperature gradients and rapid warming on the sunny days.
