Another sunny day today with the locals out enjoying the slopes now the New Year crowds have gone home.

HakubaNow bumped into a long-term member of the Hakuba47 snowmaking crew the other day. He told us that they're still a little lowon snow and have been carving out only the upper third of their halfpipe. The rest is just compacted snow on the shaped earth below. The machines 47 have can make snow when the temperature is at minus two or below, but that has still been too high for some of the recent weather we've been having.

The Happo halfpipe at Nakiyama is now ready, but is being held back for a pro-am contest there.

Conditions on the slopes continue to be akin to early spring. Coverage onpiste is fine, but whippy trees remain exposed in the trees. Seek out higher shaded areas for the best of what there is. Ungroomed areas of Happo sport the usual moguls.

A significant drop in temperature is forecast later in the week, which should bring plentiful top-quality snow.
