Good morning from Hakuba and it's a beauty.

Long time readers will know how I marvel at the beauty of the Hakuba backdrop. It never gets old. Just looking out there at those stunning mountains soothes my soul. And I don't half mind the skiing and snowboarding too. ;)

The only snow being reported this morning seems to be from the upper arears of Happo-one (5cm at Kurobishi).

Blue skies and sunshine and it should be very fine day and possibly tomorrow too.

More snow is still due Friday.

Someone asked about my reporting of coronavirus issues. Firstly, I don't believe most people want to be reading about that subject every day in a Hakuba snow report. But also, it is just not really something that I feel qualified to be talking to the world about (if that makes sense).

There have been some cases reported locally - Happo-one reported a patrol staff testing positive yesterday - but I am not personally obsessing over details. Ski areas are resting various services, but in general are opening. Things are quiet. Everyone is just doing what they can to get along the best they can. People are out there enjoying the mountain.

I personally take it seriously, taking the best care I can to not catch it and not potentially pass it on. I wear a face mask as well as a head covering when I'm out on the mountain and ride lifts alone or with my friend. All the usual stuff, and the things I would encourage anyone here to also do.

I will of course report any major news, but beyond that I would recommend following official trusted information sources that specialise on these things.

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.
