Hakuba currently sits under partially clear skies with the upper peaks still shrouded in clouds. About 20-25cm of new snow to report overnight atop the ski resorts and about 5 cm in the valley. Wind overnight has packed down the snow on ridges but still soft snow to be found in less scoured areas on and off-piste. Light wind from the NW today and more sun and clearing expected by the afternoon.

Backcountry Travel Advisory as at Feb 28th:

Wind transport of snow over the past 24hrs has deposited snow in leeward slopes and made current cornices even bigger. Due caution should be taken when entering wind loaded slopes and today's south faces will be exposed to the sun making for potential weak spots on steep faces and around rocks where the sun has warmed them up. Still obscured visibility above 2400m so be aware of the risks of not seeing where you are going.

Always assess the slope that you wish to ride with observations of avalanche activity, weather conditions and snow pack tests like the compression or reuch block test.

Avalanche Danger Scale:

Below Tree Line: Moderate

Tree Line: Considerable

Alpine: High
