Weather conditions: Snow, cloud
New snowfall: --

More snow since last night and still falling early on this morning - so really good conditions for the beginning of the weekend. Temperatures are not as low as they have been, but it's still well below 0 and so we still need to wrap up well.

It looks like tomorrow should be fine weather, with sun/cloud forecast.   Read more ...

Hakuba Now!

Saturday 5th March 2005, 12:23pm
Weather conditions: Light snow with light wind
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
We have received 25cms over night and it is still snowing lightly with great visibility on the slopes. Winds are light out of the north and temperatures are cool but pleasent. The piste is soft packed groomed or powder. crowds are moderate, yet no long lines to talk of. All in All great conditions for the week

Avalanche advisery:

With 45cm of new in the back bowls over the last 3 days we can expect to see some slides in the new layer of snow. The instability in the new snow will produce some loose slides and there is a possibility in slab avalanches sliding on the melt freeze crust that was created 5 days ago with warm temps. The wind slabs of last week have been settling and bonding together slowly but surely. There is less chance now of slides generating from these lower wind slabs but still a possibility in steep chutes and on steep open slopes under rock bands or trees where faceting may have occured around the wind crusts.

Considerable. Natural avalanches possible. Human-triggered avalanches probable.

Considerable. Natural avalanches possible. Human-triggered avalanches probable.

Below Tree line:
Moderate. Natural avalanches unlikely. Human-triggered avalanches possible.
