Weather in Hakuba now is cloudy with some clear patches opening up to the east. Much better visibility than yesterday and upper hills are not in the clouds. Maybe Tsugaike is in the clouds but Happo and 47 are clear. Only skiing on the upper portions of the hill, and the conditions are spring slush/ ice crust and some new snow over the past few days. All the hills will have downloading on the gondolas and this is recommended if you want to save your bases and don't like to walk. Wind is light from the south today and the forecast calls for light snow atop the higher peaks.

( See Backcountry Advisory Below )

Avalanche Hazard:

Above tree line: Considerable

Tree line: Moderate

Below tree line: Low

Backcountry Travel Advisory:
A fairly good day for off-piste action but not great visibilty and light out there today.
A shallow snowpack over bushes, rock outcroppings and bamboo (sasa) will be more likely to slide. Also take care in convex areas as there may be glide cracks formed and big holes in the snow. Wet, moisture laden snow will be more likely to slide on steep faces and this may also loose rocks/debris onto unwary travellers, so be careful under steep rock faces and cliffs.
