SKies are clearing here in Hakuba after a rainy night and it looks like it will be a beautiful day. Already 5 deg.C in the Valley and 3 deg.C at 1500 m. Light winds out of the West and sunny skies should prevail throughout the day with temps reaching 8 deg.C, which should make for soft workable snow on those groomed runs up top! A dusting of new snow on the top of the resorts last night was not really enough to make a difference in snow depth and we are still waiting for the next big dump. The ski hills are still only open on the top runs, but the skiing is good where there is snow. Stay tuned for the next Hakuba report.

Hakuba Goryu, Hakuba 47, Tsugaike and Happo are all open today with minimal lift operation. Hakuba Cortina, Hakuba Norikura, Hakuba Iwatake and Hakuba San Alpina are all on standby and will open when snow conditions allow.


Watch for cornices and loaded lee slopes that were created last week getting heavy with added snow fall and warmer weather. The warmer weather should, however, help to solidify the pack in the alpine and create a good bond with the ground cover.
