Just a little bit more (wet) snow to report here at base, and good to see and hear about more up on the mountains.

Down here around the village the fields are partly covered with snow; kind of like a speckled look going on there!

There will hopefully be some new cm to report down to village by tomorrow morning though after that I think we should be expecting milder temperatures for a short while and maybe some sunshine into the mix as well.

No official word yet on what might be opening come Thursday. We'll post any news for you here, of course!

From previous report:

In ski resort news, the main thing I can report is that this season Hakuba Sanosaka will not be part of the joint ‘Hakuba Valley’ ticket deal. There were various rumours going around about Sanosaka over summer... it will be opening but it looks like operations will be somewhat scaled down with just three lifts (Number 2 quad lift, Number 3 quad lift, Number 6 pair lift) scheduled to be operating. The ‘Hakuba Valley’ lift ticket prices for the 2017-2018 season have been updated on each of the 9 ski resort pages on SnowJapan.

Hakuba Now will be updated daily once the ski lifts start operating. If you want more pre-season reading and info on how previous early seasons went, you can check the archive Hakuba Now reports using the links lower down this page.

Hakuba Now ski lift operation notes:
