Hakuba is cloudy today with light showers expected at midday. These lower lying clouds may reduce visibility atop the resorts today. The snow on the runs will be soft, slushy and wet, also look out for open patches, exposed stumps/rocks and the many other skiers/boarders trying to milk the last days.

Avalanche Advisory:

Temperatures are rising and water is freely flowing in the snow pack thus slab avalanches to the ground are a definite possibility. Watch out for those precariously hanging slopes of snow on steep convexing terrain and under glide cracks. Move quickly through areas in terrain trap valley bottoms. There will be general loose wet slides on all slopes as surface snow temperatures rise and due to the snow pack being isothermal, ( all right at 0 degrees from ground to surface) Slides can be very big at this time of year so play smart.

Avalanche Hazard:

Below tree line: Low

Tree line: Moderate

Alpine: Considerable
