It was a beautiful day in Hakuba yesterday. Almost borderline warm as well in the early afternoon. The mountains were looking spectacular with white topped background with the remaining colours of autumn at village level. Great stuff. See photo attached to this report.
For the record, the first snow recorded falling up at the top of Goryu was on 2nd November. (All gone now for the moment).
It has been changeable over the last few weeks with things being getting very cold at times. Stoeves are ready, gardens are being prepared for the winter and all of the locals are busy busy making their last minute preparations for the coming busy winter season.
And it's not too far away now.
Looks like we are heading for some colder conditions tomorrow with some cold rain forecast later in the day... and the chance of a bit of sleet or snow as well if we are lucky. Whether that will come down to near village level or not, we'll just have to see.
The snow season is just around the corner now though with the first lifts hoping to be moving in just a few weeks time. Once we get to the later part of the month it's all a case of when they can start moving.
Hakuba Now will be with you this season as well, and we'll do our best to provide you with fun and fact-filled reports every day. Gambarimasu. We plan to post regularly now until those first lifts start moving. Read more ...
