As expected, it snowed a fair bit last night with 30 cm of fresh snow reported above the 1600m level. Around the village around 3cm of fresh snow is on the ground. Hakuba 47 are reporting 10cm of fresh snow at base, 20cm up at the top of the Gondola and 30-40cm at the top of the resort. Happo-one say they have 90cm.

So some new snowfall - and nice light snow too. It should be very nice up there today.

Light breezes this morning now and temperatures are between 0-2 degrees. There is a little bit of fog and cloud about the mountain ranges at the moment, but clear at base levels from 780-1200m. The main highways have been cleared but are wet and could be slippery.

We are still expecting that heavy snowfall and possibly blizzard like conditions over the weekend. Saturday and Sunday both look like they might bring with them some very considerable amounts of snow. Can't wait!

In resort operations, at Tsugaike Kogen they have an additional lift moving - the Tsuga No2 pair lift. It also looks like Hakuba Goryu plan to have the top Number 3 pair lift operating from tomorrow.

Resorts currently part open & operating lifts:

Happo-one:
Gondola
Alpen quad
Kurobishi No2 quad
Kokusai No3 pair

Hakuba Goryu:
Gondola
No1 pair lift

Tsugaike Kogen:
Gondola
Hannoki pair
Tsuga No2 pair

Official snow depths
Hakuba Goryu
Upper - 65cm
Lower - 25cm
