And a very good Monday morning to you from Hakuba.

You want more fresh snow? We got it! Oh yeah. This rather excite blast of winter in early April continues.

Here is the snow headlines from the resorts:

Happo-one: 15cm (top Gondola station)
Hakuba Goryu: 10cm (base); 15cm (upper)
Hakuba 47: 10cm (base); 15cm (upper)

Another 10cm at base!

Great stuff.

(Less important but nice to see the official snow depth numbers going up as well).

Over at Goryu, the Toomi quad lift is now closed but you can still ride down to base. At Happo-one you can still ride down to base at Nakiyama South but otherwise need to get the Gondola back down to base. Anyway, details are updated below and we'll keep an eye on those every morning.

Hope you some of you can come to enjoy this.

The four ski resorts that remain open all plan to remain at least part open until Sunday 6th May.
