Good morning to you all from Hakuba.

What do we have this morning... a modest amount of snow being reported by the ski areas (see list below), but none at base for me to add to the reports.

The clouds have broken, quite a bit remains but we have quite a lot of blue sky around. Looks rather dramatic in places. We are forecast more of that today, with clearer skies tomorrow.

A warmer weekend ahead of us again. Temperatures should remain a bit more under control before then even if the sun is out.

And here is the season total snowfall table:

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.
