Hakuba Now!

Wednesday 23rd March 2005, 8:23am
Weather conditions: Overcast and calm
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
A band of warm cloud continues to hover over Honshu today and for the next three days. This will bring mostly rain to the Hakuba area, which will fall as very wet snow in the Alpine zone. Light winds from the North prevail, increasing on Thursday afternooon.

Avalanche Advisory:
Rain from yesterday caused a rapid increase in weight of the existing surface layer. This will result in the top 20-30cm being very easy to slide. In the Alpine where precipitation fell as snow we can expect avalances in the new snow as well as in the wind slab from three days ago. Be very cautious around cornices as these will be failing under the new weight of rain/snow. In gerenal we are seeing the change over from winter to spring conditions resulting in a few larger avalanches. Over the next period of warming we can expect the stability to be low until upper layers settle.

Alpine: Considerable
Tree-Line: Considerable
Below Tree-Line: Moderate   Read more ...

Well, not so good news this morning. It's raining. Light rain, but rain all the same. With temperatures currently at +5, the forecast snow later on is looking unlikely at the moment. Fingers crossed (and we'll update the page if the rain changes to snow during the daytime).    Read more ...
