Good morning from Hakuba and there's more snow to report.

This morning the new snowfall being reported by the ski areas is 15-20cm on upper areas.

Nice.

Many of the total snowfall numbers are now over 5m.

It's lovely quality snow too.

Light snow has been falling this morning but it has stopped (outside my window here anyway) and the forecast is for mostly just cloudy skies with a chance of occasional light snow. That is what is on the menu for tomorrow too.

As I write this it feels like it might be trying to clear in places and getting brighter.

For those looking for a higher chance of sunshine and blue skies, we should be seeing some (lots?) of that Wednesday perhaps through Friday.

Here is the total snowfall accumulation table for today:

Hakuba 47420cm

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.
