This mornings accumulation of 19 cm in the valley ensures that we will have yet another great day out on the hills. There should be enough snow to reset the slopes everywhere around the valley in the resorts. Resorts around the villages are this morning reporting 30-50cm of new snowfall on upper slopes, so late January really is turning out to be very good for Hakuba. It's going to be excellent snow out there today.

It is currently snowing trace amounts and is expected to stay light until Monday when a new system follows up this big one we have just experienced with another big one.

Temperatures will stay low on the hills ranging from -6 C to - 11 C with a wind chill making it feel like -17 C. Winds will be breezy at 3m/s coming from the NW and NNW. The freezing level will remain at sea level keeping our conditions nice and wintery.

Today and tomorrow will maintain overcast skies with snow and perhaps even a small chance of some sun breaking through occasionally. Our next storm will be rolling in on Tuesday with a significant amount of precipitation expected through Thursday.

With all this new snowfall, avalanche conditions have been set at considerable below treeline and high above tree line. Please remember to ski and ride with care and respect the resort rules and regulations.
