Good morning from Hakuba.

The snow is back!

Headlines for powder hunters:

Hakuba Cortina: 30-40cm base, 40-50cm top
Hakuba 47: over 30cm
Hakuba Goryu: 15-30cm
Hakuba Happo-one: 10cm

Nice!

There's just over 15cm on the ground in the village (and a bit more since I started putting the report together) and a very nice new covering of snow on the slopes. It should be an excellent morning. Watch out for wind though and poor visibility.

Looks like the upper lifts at Happo-one are suspended at the moment due to strong wind conditions up there. Hopefully they'll be able to re-open if and when the winds ease off.

Snowfall is forecast to stop by around lunchtime but be back tomorrow with snow clouds due over Hakuba through Tuesday.

Nice. :)
