Good morning to you from Hakuba.

1st March. Yikes!

What kind of March Madness will we get this time round? Some nice blasts of winter, or some full on blasts of spring? One thing that is most definitely different from last season is we have more snow to play with.

Anyway, we start the month with blue skies and mild temperatures. The sun is out and it is a fine morning. It is most definitely more on the spring side! Expect temperatures in the village to rise to and above 10C.

Tomorrow looks rather mixed up. It is going to begin in this mild mode and we will very probably be rained on but there is hope of snow in there later in the day.

The 'total snowfall accumulation' data shown in the table on this page (above) is the total amount of snowfall that the ski areas have themselves reported from the upper areas of their resort since the beginning of the season. We manually check and update this official data just before we publish each Hakuba Now report. Any odd-looking numbers are due to the source data. We have no control over the data. Just to be extra clear, unlike our own ‘observed snowfall’ data from base that we show at the top of each report, the data in the table is not an independent observation by SnowJapan.
