It rained all last night here in the Hakuba valley, from about 6:00PM until 7:00AM. The lower slopes of all the resorts are pretty much devoid of snow, however you can still ski on the upper slopes of most of the main resorts, see below.

Expect wet and heavy snow, some icy patches and exposed areas on the runs that are open and be aware that a shallow snowpack had lots of hazards both visible and under the snow.

We are looking forward to tomorrow when it is expected to snow again in the valley, not a lot is called for but any cold temperatures are more than welcome!
