Good morning from Hakuba.

Lots of fresh snow to report on this cold morning. 30cm of it. And ski areas are reporting large numbers, the biggest coming from the Usagidaira area of Happo-one... 50cm. Numbers that are reported can be seen below, as they can be every day.

Excellent.

I am very happy to be able to report that I have now been able to report more snow at village base level than I did during the entire 2019-2020 season.

It's 9th January.

That is obviously a very healthy comparison and more like what we expect.

The total table numbers are similarly looking very different. For example, Hakuba Goryu was 620cm at the end of last season. It's currently at 503cm...


TOTAL SNOWFALL ACCUMULATION SO FAR (UPPER AREAS)

Hakuba 47380cm
Hakuba Cortina508cm
Hakuba Goryu503cm
Hakuba Happo-one461cm

Have a good weekend and stay safe both on and off the slopes.

Oh yes, I have added 'night skiing' information to the report. See below.

The 'total snowfall accumulation' data shown in the table on this page (above) 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.
