With 10cm+ last night, the runs are starting to fill in. Visibility on the mountain is poor , however, the wind has weakened since yesterday. Light and dry in the village, the snow continues to fall consistently. Snow is expected for tonight and tomorrow.



Snow has been falling nearly constantly since this morning. The visibility on the mountain is medium/poor with gusts of snow causing the occasional whiteout. The sasa grass is still peeking through in many places, but if the snowfall continues through the night, we should see some more lifts opening up soon.    Read more ...

Snow!!!!!!!!! Yeah, it's finally snowing, even down here in the village. It started snowing around 1 a.m. last night but stopped again during the night. Some time this morning it started snowing again and it still is snowing. In the village we got about 2cm of snow so far but it doesn't look as if it's going to stop soon. Now all the slopes are covered in at least a little snow, so it's a start.
But the ski area remains closed.

Snow falling since yesterday afternoon but surprisingly little left on the slopes, mainly due to the strong winds blowing it all over the place. Currently about 10cm, maybe a bit more in places, and the snow and strong winds continue this morning. Probably the coldest of the season yet, way down below.   Read more ...

Hakuba Now!

Weather conditions: Snow
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Snow has been coming down almost nonstop since yesterday. The snow started to lie at village level in the early evening and around 15cm soon accumulated in areas close to the slopes. The resorts have been getting their fare share too, with 60-70cm on the upper runs.

First out of the blocks are Goryu, whose top run opened today. 47 are suggesting the middle run used as the park may open at the weekend. Happo say their panorama course may open tomorrow. With more snow forecast for Thursday, I may well see a lot more lifts operating.

The wait is over. Winter is here!   Read more ...

Just a quick update to say that the middle part of 47 opened somewhat unexpectedly today at 1pm. Access is via the gondola. The lifts connecting to Goryu are not going.

It has stopped snowing and much of the snow at village level on the roads has melted. It's minus two at the moment.   Read more ...
