Good morning from Hakuba.

More snow on the mountains with 5-10cm being reported by the resorts:

IMPORTANT: See below for an explanation of the above data



Even a bit of a dusting in some close to base areas too.

You need to get the lifts back down to base at Happo-one now. They now have their Riesen Grat, Kurobishi, Usagidaira and Panorama courses scheduled to be open. You need to get the Gondola back down to base.

Unfortunately wind seems to be affecting lifts at the start of the day - at all of the resorts. Best check with them before making a move.

The sun is forecast to make an appearance later in the day today and for the day tomorrow, when it will also be calmer and warmer.

PS The Toomi base run at Goryu is going to be open today - probably due to the upper areas being closed at the start of the day due to wind

About the data in the above ‘snowfall as reported by ski resorts’ table
* The table within the above report contains data that is published by individual ski resorts
* The data shown is the amount of snowfall that the ski resorts are themselves reporting each 24 hour period on the upper areas of their mountain
* The source ‘new snowfall’ data and ‘total accumulation’ data is not updated at the same time
* The ‘new snowfall’ data is updated in the morning
* The ‘accumulation’ data is apparently updated/refreshed at midnight
* That means that there is a time lag between the two numbers being updated
* We manually check and update the data just before we publish each Hakuba Now report - so the data in each Hakuba Now report table is what is available at that time
* Any odd-looking numbers are due to the source data. We are not responsible for and have no control over the data. We are simply sharing the data with you
* 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
* A more in-depth introduction and explanation can be found in this report
