Hakuba Snow Report 16 January 2017

Another very snowy day today in Hakuba, similar to the last few days. All resorts are quite cold again around the -6 range.

Although we are getting some nice pow there is severe weather on the mountains. Happo has closed most of its lifts today due to weather problems, previous days had poor visibility anyway so probably would not be much different today.

All other resorts should be good with lots of powder, so take your pick – cortina, iwatake, hakuba 47/Goryu or tsugaike. Some mountains have had to close a couple lifts due to the weather.

Take care driving in/out of resorts as visibility may not be great, particularly in the late afternoon or night.

Snow should start easing up a little tomorrow and the next couple of days however heavy snow again predicted later this week.
