Morning from Hakuba.

A fine and calm day it was yesterday. The skies turned somewhat overcase from early afternoon but it stayed bright until evening arrived.

Snow clouds moved back in overnight and we have around 10cm of fresh snowfall this morning - both around base and higher up, so it seems. Most snow reported coming from Hakuba 47 with 20cm in upper areas.

It is continuing to snow now, though it isn't a particularly cold morning. Right now it is around -2C here at base and just a bit colder at 1400m. In fact some forecasts are calling for sleet or even rain later in the village and lower slopes areas. Hopefully we can avoid that. Not much of a wind this morning.

Should be colder again from tomorrow.

Unfortunately there's some very sad news to report. It seems that there was a death in recent days in the region. A male snowboarder was caught up and died due to avalanche burial in a North East aspect of out of bounds area (ie. not within the resort) of Tsugaike. Apparently he was riding alone during the snow storm conditions and triggered the slide on himself because of a cornice failure. It is always extremely sad to have to report this kind of incident of course, and hopefully hearing the reality of things like this happening might make people re-consider the potential dangers out there. If you are the type who likes to venture out of the course areas, make sure that you know what you are doing, are with someone who also knows what they are are doing and also have the right equipment. Please do take note of ski patrol closures - they're really not there to spoil the day. Our thoughts to the family.
