Hakuba is partly cloudy today, with sunny patches coming through in the morning. Great spring conditions this weekend on packed and groomed runs. Some exposed grass showing in lower areas so take care on the edges of runs. Snow is expected tonight so tomorrow AM should have some freshies for those who get up there early.

Backcountry travel advisory:

We're seeing real spring conditions with high fluctuations in temperature reaching to around 10 on the plus extreme and plunging down into the negatives at the other. The night before last saw the temperature drop and snow down to the valley for the first time in a while which was repeated yesterday afternoon and through last night. This fresh snow is sitting on the old sliding pack on a mixture of crust and melt-freeze and will come off easily. There was no wind to speak of meaning a fairly even coverage however its possible there were some winds in the Alpine and if so there will be some packing on lee-ward slopes.

There are a lot of protruding rocks, gaping holes, big dirt patches etc. up to fairly high on the mountain, especially on solar aspects, that will have received a light dusting of snow but be very very careful if travelling down these. They don't look like much fun at all. Northern Aspects haven't received quite the hammering but warm temperatures have seen a lot of deprecation of the snow pack, rocks will be protruding, holes and cracks will be forming and fluctuating temperatures will have created crust and melt freeze conditions. Be extremely careful and scope any slopes well in advance before entering any off-piste areas.

Avalanche Danger:

Below Tree Line: Moderate

Tree Line: Considerable

Alpine: Considerable
