Today, Hakuba is currently under sunny blue skies with temperatures lingering around the 1~2 deg.C mark and light winds out of the North. It is expected to snow from midnight tonight through tomorrow and possible until Sunday morning! We are truly enjoying this second breath of Winter here after almost giving up hope... some people had already started putting away their boards and begun picking sansai (wild mountain vegetables)!

Our trained avalanche forecaster and weather guru is still out and his absence has been extended to the 18th of March, so the in-depth weather observations from Hirakawa Study Plot are put on hold til then.

Todays's Avalanche Hazard follows....play safe out there powderhounds!


Above tree line: Considerable

Tree line: Considerable

Below tree line: Low

N.B. As was noted previously: these hazard levels will likely increase with the daytime warming

Travel Advisory:

With today's sun affected slopes there may be south facing areas of failure once the snow gets melting and more moisture laden. Also caution should be taken in lee side wind loaded slopes where a deep wind packed snowpack is present. Areas of tension around rocks and convex rolls should also be avoided. Gullies and steeper aspects could still be potential areas of danger as there still is quite a bit of fresh snow sitting atop some crust layers.
