Finally, SNOW!

What started as rain yesterday with temperatures hovering around 13 degrees C turned to snow overnight. Snow in the valley was heavy and only amounted to 1 cm where as snow at higher elevations was mostly graupel or Styrofoam type balls of snow that are associated with high moister and high wind snow storms.

During the night winds were very strong out of the North West. It was definitely a sight for sore eyes to wake to snow this morning. We can expect present light light flurries to taper into the afternoon and then snows to start again early tomorrow morning. Hakuba Goryu, Hakuba 47 and Happo are hoping to restart snow making with expected lower temperatures tonight and start to create a base on the slopes. Hakuba 47 says that if low temperatures persist then they will hopefully open a few runs this week end.
