We got some nice snowfall yesterday!

Light, dry powder fell from the afternoon and there was some decent accumulation, Goryu reporting 30cm up top so you can imagine that equals a lot of good fresh snow out there.

And get this - Hakuba Cortina is reporting a whopping 50cm of fresh snow this morning up top, with 40cm down by the hotel. Upper slopes there now busting the 4m mark for, I think, the first time this season. Not bad for nearly mid-March!

The snow depth at Tsugaike has also taken a 40cm depth jump as well this morning.

Temperatures are holding cold, snow will stay in good condition with around 0 degrees at the base and -7 at 1400m. There were some gusting winds overnight so I wouldn't be surprised to find some areas wind-blown and others full of wind-deposited fluffy powder super-stash pockets of joy.

More snow forecast for Friday with Saturday and Sunday looking to be pearler bluebird days, we'll probably see hundreds of people out hiking this weekend.

Snow has been sliding on top of a melt-freeze layer and with all this extra snow on top if it slips there could be large-scale slides so play it careful out there and always travel with qualified guides if you don't have training and experience as well as knowing the area you are entering.
