And it is another extremely good morning from Hakuba.

It really feels like winter is back at the moment.

We have got about 10-15cm of new snow at base areas, but it actually feels like way more than that. It kept snowing all day long yesterday and finally stopped sometime last night. 25 to 30cm of new snow on the top of resorts, with some spots claiming up to 40-60cm! How about that then for late March! Lots of new snowfall all of a sudden that has taken more than a few people by surprise. We'll have no complaints right now, and today will be a very fine day to be out riding on the slopes.

Still lots of cloud around but there are breaks in it and some blue sky on show - the forecast has the conditions clearing up and it looks like it is starting to happen.

The forecast is saying that we have a chance of snow tonight again with snow level of 200m, but sun and milder conditions likely tomorrow. The snow level will go up to 1200m and 2300m to 2700m on Thursday and Friday with much milder conditions due once again later in the week.

AVALANCHE DANGER IS HIGH. Because of this sudden huge amount of snow, it is pretty unstable everywhere in back country area now. Traveling BC area is not recommended. It will need al least 24 hours to get all the new snow settled down. Because of the winds against ridges last night, conies has formed many places and are very unstable.

Looks like the sun is coming out now over the village. Ba safe and enjoy!
