Well, the snow depth number for the upper slopes at Tsugaike has risen 10cm since yesterday. The snow depth number at Hakuba 47 remains the same, but they are reporting 20cm and in places up to 30cm of new snowfall on their upper slopes!

Impressive for late April.

Down in the village area it has been rain/sleet this morning so far but just go up a bit and you'll have snow falling around you at all of the resorts that are open. It certainly doesn't feel like Golden Week here today.

I'd say it's definitely worth taking a trip up on the lifts today to get in some turns on fresh snow.

Weather conditions are forecast to improve later on today, though it won't warm up much at all. Tomorrow and Monday should be much clearer and warmer.

Enjoy!
