What a day it has turned out to be. What started as 10cm overnight has turned into 60cm plus at 19:00 Sunday night. It would look as if the last day of the year may be one of the best for the year as the snow is not slowing down and accumulating rapidly.

Expect waist deep powder in the untouched areas and at least knee deep over groomed on the runs. There has been very little wind to speak of and temperatures are still dropping and this means that conditions will be excellent for deep light powder on all resorts in Hakuba.

It looks as though the snow will continue into the new year so if you wanted to try out those new Fat Powder boards you just got, now is the time.

Some of the lifts in the valley may be slower to open tomorrow with all the snow clearing around the lifts needed and avalanche control on Hakuba Goryu, Hakuba 47, Tsugaike and Hakuba Cortina.


Backcountry Travel Advisory:

Extreme caution should be taken by anyone planning to go into the back country again today. Travel in the backcountry is ill advised as all slopes are being rapidly loaded with snow that is over riding yesterdays rain crust. There will be definite instabilities in the new snow and possible slabs from the Rain crust / New snow interface. Slogging up through 1 metre plus of deep powder makes for a bit of a mission as well. Not a day for hiking in the backcountry. A great day to stay in bounds and get some great face shots.
