It is a beautiful morning today in Hakuba, with warm weather and blue skies after a cold night. There is not a cloud in the sky and the nice white Hakuba peaks clearly visible.

The snow will have hopefully dried out a little more and stayed light, so there will definitely be some decent snow to be found.

Lots of sunshine is expected today so the slopes will definitely be softening up as the day progresses. First thing in the morning you can still expect to find some remnants of the powder of 2 days ago, however the warming trend will make that powder heavy and wet pretty quick. Also the wetter snow from yesterday will still be hard and icy until 11AM or so.

Over the past few days Hakuba received approximately 30-40cms, which gave everyone that was on the mountain yesterday some great powder especially up high.
The forecast for the rest of the day is clear, calm and sunny - enjoy it today because tomorrow there is a little rain on the forecast. Temperatures are soaring over the next couple of days and by Monday it's predicting double figures, so it will probably be back to the soft slush spring conditions.

AVALANCHE BULLETIN:

Alpine: HIGH
Tree Line: HIGH
Below Tree Line: Considerable

The accumulation of the past 3 days of snow atop an unstable melt/freeze and rain crust are creating instability in almost all aspects. Steeper unsupported terrain, around rocks and outcroppings and convex rolls are likely spots to see avalanche activity. Combine this current layer and add in high solar radiation and the risks of a slide will increase.

Expect sluffing and sluffing propagating to avalanches in steeper terrain. Expect more avalanche activity on south facing solar radiated slopes.
