Morning all and greetings from Hakuba.

We're still on stand-by as we wait for more snow and for the season to get going.

There has been some sprinklings on the mountains, but not down to lowest base areas just yet. Hakuba Happo-one are currently reporting a snow depth of 25cm at Kurobishi and 20cm at Usagidaira; with 2cm overnight on those upper areas.

The exciting news is that the wait may soon be over though. Forecasts show good snowfall due from Sunday onwards and into next week.

-----

There was some drama over the autumn months surrounding the status of the Hakuba Sanosaka ski area for this season.

At one point it was looking like it would not be opening for the 2020-2021 season, but they then announced a turn-around and the good news is that Hakuba Sanosaka will be open. Phew!

-----

Had a bit of a chuckle at the wording of a message put out by Hakuba Valley regarding use of the Epic Pass.

'While we're just as bummed as you are about travel restrictions...'

Fair point, I suppose!

-----

All ski areas currently closed as we wait for snow.
