Good morning from Hakuba.

It's a kind of wet morning here in the village and base areas - but the good news is that there is some snow being reported from ski areas at higher elevations.

10-15cm on those upper areas at a few resorts (curious that Cortina is reporting 0cm).

Good to see fresh though.

Particularly later on in the season the chance of this happening increases... 0cm down here at base but snow on the mountain. I'll always mention any snow that is being reported by the ski areas; but remember I am simply reporting what they say.

It's a bit windy out there this morning and I note that the top lifts at Happo-one on hold at the time of this report.

Tomorrow should be a bit colder. If it gets cold enough we might even get a bit of snow. That would be nice.

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.
