Winter-like conditions back in Hakuba today. Goryu and other resorts have been reporting 25-30cm on the upper slopes with something more like 5cm on lower areas this morning. It has been snowing the day though and looks set to bring us more so there's snow on the roads and it once again feels like winter with cold temperatures as well. Actually getting colder as the day moves on and a considerable amount of snow possible going into tomorrow. Normally that would bring out people seeking the fresh stuff, but things remain remarkably quiet given all that is going on in other regions.

Operations at Hakuba Goryu... the Alps No 2 and Alps No 4 lifts will be closed apart from the upcoming three day weekend (19th-21st March). Nighta has also finished for the season, as it has at Happo. Many places are trying to cut down on energy consumption like everyone else, meaning some things may be closed or running slower than normal. More bits of information added below.
