Good morning from Hakuba.

I was out of town yesterday but have come back to some fresh snow on the ground and reports of 20-35cm of fresh snow being reported by the ski areas on upper areas. Sounds great.

It is still snowing now here in the village and of course higher up. More snow is likely today and particularly overnight tonight and through into tomorrow morning.

Quite cold and feels a bit windy, though all areas look like they are opening as planned.

This is the second report I have written today. I had the report all prepared and ready and then closed the browser by mistake before posting. Silly me. Nothing like wasting 30 minutes! Entirely my own fault of course...

The 'total snowfall accumulation' data shown in the table on this page (above) is the total amount of snowfall that the ski areas have themselves reported from the upper areas of their resort since the beginning of the season. We manually check and update this official data just before we publish each Hakuba Now report. Any odd-looking numbers are due to the source data. We have no control over the data. Just to be extra clear, unlike our own ‘observed snowfall’ data from base that we show at the top of each report, the data in the table is not an independent observation by SnowJapan.
