It's a lovely morning here in Hakuba. Lots of blue skies above the village and just some cloud around the mountains. Picture perfect.

So what about the snow I hear you ask? Well the mountains are looking splendidly white right down to around half way down the resort slopes. Just looking at the forecast for the coming week for the region and it looks more like warming up a bit than getting colder. Quite a bit of fine conditions and temperatures perhaps even reaching double digits in the village around Friday/Saturday, then rain probably early in the week. Not much in terms of chances of snow for the moment.

Resorts around here are somewhat shy about mentioning fixed opening dates and it's usually just a case of 'when there's enough snow' once we get to the end part of November - especially for Happo-one, Hakuba 47, Hakuba Goryu and Tsugaike Kogen. I will try my best to keep on top of the situation as it develops.

For the record though, here's the 'official' dates out there:

Hakuba 47 - late November
Hakuba Goryu - late November
Happo-one - late November
Tsugaike Kogen - late November
Kashimayari Sports Village - early December
Hakuba Sanosaka - mid December
Hakuba Norikura Onsen - mid December
Hakuba Cortina - Saturday 13th December
Hakuba Iwatake Snow Field - Friday 19th December

Happo-one are saying that they will open the upper slopes above 1200m if there is sufficient snow, with the bottom slopes at 800m Sakka, Kokusai 1 likely to remain closed until 1st week of December unless snowfall.

In other Hakuba-related news, the small Hakuba Minekata ski hill up behind the station area announced in September this year that it would not be opening this season.
