Real winter conditions in Hakuba yesterday with deep powder in the morning and snow falling most of the day. Strong winds were filling in tracks while riding the lift which made for plenty of fresh lines. Beside the wind it was one of the best days so far this season.

A little bit of snow fell through last night but not enough to produce much accumulation this morning. Not snowing in the village now which is currently at a temperature of -2 degrees C but clouds are hovering fairly low and Goryu as at 8:15 was reporting -9 degree C temps on top with snow falling. Blue skies poking through on the East side of the valley but snow flurries forecast today and through the weekend. Some strong winds today as well which could mean some limited lift access on higher slopes.

Base depth hasn't increased significantly since Tuesday's snowfall due to wind and settlement.


Avalanche Danger Scale and Advisory:

Below Tree Line: Moderate

Tree Line: Condsiderable

Alpine: High

High amounts of steady wind and snow Tuesday night has increased the likelyhood of natural and skier triggered avalanches. Wind transport of snow (cornices and snow drifts) is present and frequent in both south and north faces. Be aware that even on-resort terrain might be prone to avalanches on steeper and open lee-ward faces. Expect sluffing on steeper terrain and avoid passing under chutes/avalanche paths.
