Morning.

More blue sky this morning and both today and tomorrow are going to be... spring-like warm.

Interesting to see Hakuba 47 and Goryu reporting 10cm of snow on their upper areas this morning. None down below.

It looks like wind is an issue this morning and affecting various top lifts around the valley. Unfortunately Happo-one is restricted to just a bunch of lower lifts early on and a few upper lifts at Goryu/47 are also on hold.

Next fresh snow chance on Tuesday when it will be starting to get colder again.

The totals table, today unchanged:

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.
