Morning!

After mostly very fine weather yesterday - some cloud in the afternoon - we start this morning with... rain. It's a wet and grey kind of morning and while it might remain 'light' rain on and off during today, a heavier and more consistent variety of it is lined up for tomorrow.

Tomorrow is a national holiday and it is the start of the Golden Week period here in Japan. With major population areas currently asking people not to travel (due to the covid-19 situation) and not particularly great weather forecast, it might be a very quiet Golden Week. Let's hope that the weather ends up being better than currently forecast.

Total snowfall accumulation on upper areas:

TOTAL SNOWFALL ACCUMULATION SO FAR (UPPER AREAS)
* Numbers reported by ski areas

Hakuba 47832cm
Hakuba Cortina915cm
Hakuba Goryu1083cm
Hakuba Happo-one867cm
Tsugaike Kogen985cm


The 'total snowfall accumulation' data shown in the table 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.
