Unfortunately, the snow that we were hoping for yesterday did not happen and instead we got rain.

Hakuba currently is sitting under cloudy skies and with light snow expected today once more but right now it is still rain mode.

Ski hill conditions today will be hard and icy as the rain permeated snow has frozen up as the temperatures dropped overight. As rain has been reported right to the top of the hills, one would expected to find some rain crust on pretty much all aspects. With the rain as well the snowpack has settled and melted quite a bit.

Skiers and snowboarders would be best to have nice sharp edges out there today, and maybe enjoy some smooth groomers and park where firmed up snow is ok for riding.

Travel Advisory:

Stay out of the backcounrty, stay to the groomed piste or make it a clean up the house and have an onsen day. But if you must go into the backcountry stay to very low angle slopes, stick to the ridges and be aware of hazards above you. Stay well back from cornices as they are heavy and will step back at least twace as big.

Avalanche Hazard:

Alpine: High
Tree Line: High
Below Tree Line: High
