Good morning from Hakuba.

There's no cm of fresh snow to report from around the ski areas this morning, and we start the day with largely light blue skies with some thin high cloud. It is bright and sunny.

It was a cold start early on but is quite quickly warming up.

Like in many of the other reports today, it's going to be a case of a warm and sunny upcoming weekend followed by fresh snow again sometime in the first part of next week.

Hopefully it will be a fun weekend for everyone here, with that promise of fresh snow beyond it.

Here is the updated totals table:

TOTAL SNOWFALL ACCUMULATION SO FAR (UPPER AREAS)

Hakuba 47670cm
Hakuba Cortina800cm
Hakuba Goryu862cm
Hakuba Happo-one758cm

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.
