Good morning from Hakuba.

We are having a bit of a drizzly-rainy spell at the moment - both some yesterday and this morning. Rain in winter is always a bit annoying, of course, but - big picture - we usually do get it a few times over winter. Even in a great season. We might have to sit through some more down at base anyway today and perhaps tomorrow, but it should be snowing at higher elevations. If we are lucky we might get some fresh down to base levels overnight tonight.

All forecasts show clearer skies come Monday with the sun making a headline appearance.

Here's the total accumulation numbers, unchanged this morning:

TOTAL SNOWFALL ACCUMULATION SO FAR (UPPER AREAS)

Hakuba 47490cm
Hakuba Cortina614cm
Hakuba Goryu640cm
Hakuba Happo-one578cm
Tsugaike Kogen648cm



Someone asked about that lovely webcam image there used to be looking west over towards Iwatake and Happo-one. As I mentioned in a previous report (you not reading every report? Naughty!), that webcam image does not seem to be working this year. If it were available, I would share it. But if it's not available, I can't.

I didn't go out there and take that shot every morning, you know. ;)

I wish you all a fine Saturday.

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.
