Good morning from Hakuba... just about! A lunch time update for you today.

Some light snow this morning with ski areas reporting 5-10cm on their upper areas. It feels more like winter again today after that blast of spring since the weekend. There's a bit of a wind but all areas appear to be open as planned on this national holiday.

The Riesen quad lift at Happo-one was closed Sunday and yesterday due to some kind of issue but it back running today.

Tomorrow we are due clearer skies again, but this time without the big warm up.

The forecast for the coming week isn't looking particularly snowy and it looks like there's more clear and mild conditions due for the weekend. And then it will be nearly March (!)

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.
