Weather conditions: Light snow, cloud > clearing up

We're happy to report that the snow continued through yesterday and as a result we've got quite a fair bit of snow around the area now. Earlier on it was still snowing but over the last hour it has been clearing up and the sun is out at the moment. Everywhere is looking really pretty.

Anyway today Iwappara have opened up part of their slopes with Number 1,2 and 3 pair lifts going servicing the Romance Course, Main Gelende, Westside Course and Slalom Courses. GALA is open and reporting 140cm. Tashiro, while open on Saturday and Sunday, is now closed until the 17th when it will open once more (this time for the whole season!)

The places that are open will be enjoying really great conditions.

We'll be updating the page again later on in the day.   Read more ...

Weather conditions: Snowing

Again yesterday we received heavy snow for the whole day. The accumulation rates were over 10cm per hour from about 11 o'clock onwards and at times got over 15cm per hour. Now that is really heavy snow!! Off piste it is bottomless and you get face shots with every turn. Currently it is snowing moderately and it is expected to get heavier again tomorrow.

All this snow is great for turns on the mountain but it is causing major problems for locals. Snow clearers just can't keep up and the roads are treacherous. And if like me you haven't cleared off the car in the last couple of days it has become almost totally buried. If the snow contiues like this it will end up being a truly epic season.

There is light! Yes, for the first time in a LONG time, we have some sunshine. Although we cannot complain about all the snow we've had, it is nice to see the Alps and feel the sun on one's face once in awhile. The Winter scenery here in Hakuba is second to none, so grab your cameras and get some great snow shots while the weather lasts! Cause, it does look like more snowy days for most of the week,,,:)   Read more ...

After another snowy day yesterday, today is shaping up to be a bright sunny one - the sun is out at the moment. Not a huge amount of snow over the weekend, but enough to top us up and give us some good conditions on the slopes that are open - great day to be out there.   Read more ...
