Sunny weather and blue skies to the North East today in Hakuba, although the upper peaks are shrouded in clouds this morning. Again it looks like it is going be a warm day in the valley and unfortunately that means more snow melting at the bottom of the resorts. If the temperatures stay cold during the day the base we have should remain alright. With skiers and boarders hitting the slopes over the weekend, the runs will get packed down naturally and the base should harden up nicely.

The resorts that are open today only have the upper lifts open and only a few runs open, but it is skiing none the less. Be aware of the shallow snowpack and hazards under the snow.

Some precipitation is forecasted for the next few days, currently not cold enough to snow in the valley so might be rain below, snow up top. The middle of next week is also looking good for some snow and hopefully it will come in a huge blizzard.

For the resorts in Hakuba see below:

Hakuba Goryu:
Goryu has opened the Alps no daira Panorama course with the Gondola and No 1 pair lift moving and taking people up the mountain.

Hakuba 47:
47 is also now open - just the R4 course and the upper part of the R8 course at the moment with the Gondola, Line A/B and Line E lifts operating.

Tsugaike Kogen:
This resort is also open. The Gondola plus the Han-no-ki high speed pair lift and the Han-no-ki No 4 lift are now up and running.

Happo still hasn't opened up yet.

Other resorts:

Hakuba Iwatake plans to open for the season on 18th December.

Hakuba Minekata and Hakuba Sanosaka plan to open for the season on 23rd December.
