Good afternoon. And how are you all doing?

Welcome back to the 'Hakuba Now' report section for the upcoming 2018-2019 season.

It is November.
It has been getting cold (though over the next few days it will be less so...)
And the first sprinklings of snow have been spotted on upper ski slopes of the mountains. All exciting stuff.

My last report which included a 2017-2018 season wrap up (which can be found here) was on 6th May, so that was almost six months ago. Since then, Japan has endured a rather hot summer and more than a fair share of nature-related 'events' too. Various typhoons, flooding and that earthquake up in Hokkaido all made international news. We got some very heavy rain but avoided too much drama from all of that lot.

Hopefully, Nature will decide to give us a particularly consistently snowy winter!

I plan to be here with you every day throughout the upcoming season - daily once the first ski lifts start moving, which should be 23rd November. Which is just three weeks off.

I will be back with increasingly regular reports in the run up to that date with more info and (hopefully) snowy news.

AS THE SNOW ARRIVES...
Please note that some of our 'Now' reports may appear a little later than usual over the coming few days. As ski resorts start to open up, more information needs to be gathered and so more time is needed. Thank you for your understanding.
