UPDATED AT 4:45PM:

Happo-one have announced that they will be opening (or 'pre-opening'!) tomorrow - the Gondola will be taking the first people up the mountain at 8:30am tomorrow morning with the Panorama pair lift and Kokusai Number 3 lifts also starting their season at 8:40am. Looks like it is special lift ticket price time - 2500 yen for adults and 1500 yen for children.

Hakuba Goryu are also opening tomorrow with the top Panorama course open, serviced by the Gondola and the Alps No1 pair lift. The Gondola will open at 8:30am. They are reporting an impressive 1m of snow up top there. It's 2400 yen for adults and 1250 yen for children. Hakuba 47 plans to have Line E lift open on Saturday and Sunday.

Looking like it will clear up tomorrow but hey, it's 'season in'!

Tsugaike Kogen is currently planning to open from Saturday.

ORIGINALLY POSTED THIS MORNING:

After a milder spell of weather, this morning I bring good news from Hakuba with another layer of snow on the ground. There's around 20cm or so fallen by the roads in the valley.

It started snowing yesterday morning and by late morning the ski jump at Happo - which is where I happened to be - was all white. The snow eased up later in the day but Hakuba 47 was reporting 20cm of snow at the Gondola summit station and 30cm up at 1450m... they were calling it 'heavy' snow.

This morning they are talking of 40cm down at base

They are on standby to pretty much open as quickly as possible now. Hopefully very soon.

Back to the weather. The snow seems to be easing off now and the local forecast is for cloudy conditions today. Not that much snow lined up on the weekly forecast into next week as it stands at the moment, but we know how easily that can change.

Our reports from Hakuba will becoming very regular from now on (and soon daily) - nearly there!
