Hello and good morning from Hakuba.

And I have more good news.

Check out the snowfall numbers todays winner of the 'most reported snowfall' award, Cortina: 30-40cm. Other ski areas reporting less, but still some healthy numbers on the mountain.

It is a cold morning and the earlier light snowfall has now eased off. It has got a little brighter as well. I wonder if we might see breaks in the cloud and even some sun. If not today, tomorrow is forecast to be clearer and milder once again (hopefully not too much on the mild thing).

Some great conditions at the moment. Very pleasing.

And here is the updated totals table.

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.
