1 meter of new snow... would have made it a really incredible day up on the resorts today, but according to the BC enthusiasts it was actually great knee deep powder up in the Alpine, so if you are willing to hike a bit...

On the resorts it was a balmy 5 deg.C and fairly good snow softned up by the warm weather. We should see the temperatures drop drastically overnight and through tomorrow however and are expecting moderate snow flurries Sunday and part of Monday.

Hakuba Goryu, Hakuba 47, Tsugaike and Happo are all open today with minimal lift operation. Hakuba Cortina, Hakuba Norikura, Hakuba Iwatake and Hakuba San Alpina are all on standby and will open when snow conditions allow.


Watch for cornices and loaded lee slopes that were created last week getting heavy with added snow fall and warmer weather. The warmer weather should, however, help to solidify the pack in the alpine and create a good bond with the ground cover.
