I was just over at Hakuba 47 where there's about 10cm of fresh snow on the ground. Happo-one are reporting 45cm of snow at Usagidaira and 10cm on lower slopes. Goryu and 47 were both yesterday mentioning 30-40cm of snow higher up...

No news on lifts opening or firm plans for opening just yet at the moment, but we're nearly there!

It's forecast to get slightly warmer later today with a chance of snow changing to rain - down here in the village anyway, will surely remain snow higher up - but with snow still generally forecast through tomorrow and into the weekend... yes, we're nearly there.

EXCITE INFO UPDATE AT 1PM:

Happo-one have announced that they will open tomorrow - Friday 5th. The Panorama course will be open. Getting up there via the Gondola and the Kokusai Numer 1 lifts with the Kokusai Number 3 and Panorama lifts servicing the open area. Hurray! They plan to get the Gondola into action at 9am (until 4pm).

Expect more news when I post a new proper report tomorrow morning...
