From one extreme to another. Poor mother nature seems to be having trouble deciding on a consistent weather pattern of late. Unlike yesterday, Hakuba is foggy, windy and cold. Overnight saw some of the strongest winds this season. Big rains came and went last night, for a while the storm was very intense, thunder lightning and strong winds. With the strong winds though, the snow coverage is showing the affects this morning.

With that rain in the early hours of this morning, the snow cover is on the damp side, but moderate snow has started to fall. Definitely expect to see some settlement and melting of the snowpack out there today.

Snow is forecast to fall throughout the day and the wind set to moderate and swing more north, cooling temperatures down.

Chairlifts are starting to turn with the moderating winds, so if you are keen to get some turns in check the online status and go for a ride. Just be careful of possible debris on the roads and runs and enjoy your day.

So... conditions on the resorts today will be soft and wet slushy snow, some crud and groomer and chopped powder (albeit kind of heavy powder). Tomorrow is supposed to be clearing with some sun. Still great coverage and good snow to be found on the hills out there so bundle up and enjoy the tail end of the winter!
