Hakuba Now!

Weather conditions: Overcast and snowy
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Big big snowflakes falling like crazy this morning! Seems the winter still is holding its grip on the village of Hakuba and we are not complaining in the least. The temperature is hovering around the zero mark in the valley bottom and it should be a few degrees colder up top. About 3 cms have accumulated in the valley and approx. 5-6 cms on the upper slopes.
Keep your fingers crossed for continued snow!

Avalanche Danger is Moderate:

Natural avalanches unlikely.
Human triggered avalanches possible.
Use caution in steeper terain. Instabilities in surface snow.
Take care as the more new accumulates.   Read more ...

So much for the forecasts last night - they were very wrong!

There is no sun around this morning. There is lots of cloud and at the moment at town level there is some heavy rain falling. We have just spoken to Kagura and apparently it is raining at Mitsumata but that turns into snow once you get to the top at Kagura.

Gala are reporting that their lifts may be operating at slower speeds than normal (or even stop) due to strong winds this morning up there.

So not the best of conditions today, and the forecast is for similar conditions throughout the day and into tomorrow with a chance of it turning into snow sometime in between.   Read more ...

Beautiful morning out there with light winds and sunshine. The Gondola and Family lifts are running over the weekend. the gondola will allow easier access to Miharashi and a few nice lines should be found through there today. There is a huge terrain park being created next to the Ace #3 lift but not sure when they'll be opening this up. Anyway definitely a day to climb the peak for amazing views and for the best snow qaulity. Just don't forget the sunscreen.    Read more ...

It was rain late on last night but the good news this morning is that we have more snow falling in the area. Light snow, but snow all the same! It's fairly mild - similar to how it was yesterday - so lets hope that it keeps to the snow and doesn't go back to rain.

Sun Valley and a few other smaller areas opening up again for the weekend, so the majority of the areas are open.   Read more ...
