Hello and good morning from Hakuba.

Lovely day yesterday and it was great to get those first turns in for the season. May there be many more!

Today, Hakuba Goryu joins the party with Hakuba 47 deciding to wait until tomorrow to open.

I have added the resort-specific info below and will do my best to try and keep on top of it all every morning in this rush-to-open early part of the season.

This morning there is a lot more cloud around and light snow falling in places, it's just above zero now. It's going to warm up a bit later on in the day, but things should be back to snow later on and there's a good chance of snow tonight and over the weekend as well. All good and I'll update you on the latest tomorrow morning.
