Good morning from Hakuba.

Anyone reading this get out there yesterday? I did for just 30 minutes, I just couldn't resist. It felt great and felt good to see so much white at this stage of the season.

Early this morning it's a mix of blue sky, sunshine and think cloud. It's not going to be as cold today and more cloud is expected to move in as the day progresses, with rain/snow due overnight tonight. Looking good for some decent snowfall at higher elevations into the weekend.

Hakuba Happo-one snow and weather forecast

Tsugaike Kogen have announced that they will be opening up from tomorrow (Thursday 23rd). There's no word yet on exactly what will be opening up (not that I can find anyway).

Hakuba 47 will also be opening tomorrow... sort of! What I mean by that is that the top R-8 course of Hakuba 47 will be available to ski and snowboard on, though access to that course is via the Hakuba Goryu gondola - so the Hakuba 47 gondola will not be operating and you can't get up there from the 47 base. Make sense?

Already part open:

Hakuba Happo-one
The Kokusai Number 1 and 3 lifts are operating.
The Panorama course area is open.

Hakuba Goryu
The Hakuba Goryu gondola and Alps Number 1 pair lift are operating.
The top Panorama course is open.
