Hakuba presently sits under clear blue skies andthe sun is shining! Higher ridges were exposed to some fierce winds yesterday afternoon and evening. Expect to find scoured ridges and wind loaded areas in South East facing slopes.
A dusting of snow (trace) fell overnight but the hill is still great with great coverage all over and packed powder/fresh powder if you look around. Still crisp and cold at 8:00 AM but expect sun radiation on lower slopes and south facing slopes.

With the recent (Feb 1st) snowfall there will be possibilities of natural avalaches and triggering slides on steeper open aspects will be more likely. Slab formation on wind loaded slopes and lee-side aspects will be more dangerous terrain and should be avoided. Wind lips and cornices also were created over the past few days and should be avoided. Today's sun will aslo be a factor as tempeartures rise, south aspects get radiated and the snow gets heavier.

Travel Advisory:

Be aware of and very cautious of slabs that are already forming due to solar exposure, past rapid acumulation of strom snow and with increased winds yesterday. With rapid loading on all aspects we will see pockets of old surface snow on top of wind slab give way to soft slabs of 65 cm's plus. Take due care in steep terrain especially around rock out crops.
