Hakuba Now!

Sunday 15th April 2007, 8:32am
Weather conditions: Sunny
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
It's a beautiful day in Hakuba; Blue skies, Winds are calm and there is fresh above 1600 metres from the storm yesterday. This will turn to mush by the afternoon but should be sweet first lines this morning.

Get up there early and have a blast. Expect loose avalanches to fall on wind loaded solar radiated slopes as these warm up through the day.

( See Backcountry Advisory Below )
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Avalanche Hazard:

Above tree line: Considerable

Tree line: Moderate

Below tree line: Low

Backcountry Travel Advisory:
Continue to be cautious as temperatures rise through the day especially as there is no wind to cool the surface snow.

People heading out in the backcountry should be wary of solar radiation on south facing aspects. Wind loaded slopes and cornices will also be areas to avoid as the day warms up. As mentioned earlier, shallow snowpack over bushes, rock outcroppings and bamboo (sasa) will be more likely to slide. Also take care in convex areas as there may be glide cracks formed and big holes in the snow. Wet, moisture laden snow will be more likely to slide on steep faces and this may also loose rocks/debris onto unwary travellers, so be careful under steep rock faces and cliffs.   Read more ...

Weather conditions: Sun, blue skies
New snowfall: --

Yesterday turned into a fine day and it is more of the same today with bright blue skies and the sun out warming things up. The snow has been busy melting away of late with the warm temperatures and there are more patches starting to appear on the courses that remain open (of which there are still quite a few). There's still a lot of fun to be had.

Resort areas open are the same as yesterday   Read more ...
