Hakuba Now!

Weather conditions: Bright sunny

Beautiful conditions here on Sunday morning. It's bright and sunny and the mountains look fantastic. Before you start worrying though, the temperature down here in the village is still -8, so the slopes will no doubt be in excellent condition. To just update things, most places reported 5-10cm overnight going in Saturday.

As a follow-up to the DBD info, yesterday HakubaNow headed out to another resort that allows offpiste access. It's called Charmant Hiuchi and is located in Niigata behind (i.e. west of) Arai, just under two hours from Hakuba. I hear that they had a DBD there last year, though it consisted of only a safety discussion. The entire resort was and still is open to everyone. You can come down off the lifts whichever way you like. Having never been to a non-Japanese resort, the best comparison I can give you is with the conditional area there at Arai. There was 30-50cm of fresh snow there yesterday and we had a great time. Many thanks to the locals who showed us some nice lines.   Read more ...

More snow fell yesterday, but this morning arrives with the sun peaking through the clouds - it looks like it should be a find day. It is also cold, down to -5 as of 10am, but almost no winds.

Conditions were tested at Iwappara, GALA, Kandatsu, Kagura and Naeba yesterday and reports from all are of amazingly good snow conditions.   Read more ...

No new snow overnight, and warmer weather this morning. Reading 0C at the base of the gondola, snow conditions are heavier today. A mixture of cloud and sunshine is providing good visibility, and Mt Yotei looks magnificent.

Warmer waxes required, with most fun on the groomers.   Read more ...
