Hakuba snow report, 17 January 2013: Sunny day in Hakuba

Apologies for a lack of reporting thus far this season as both of our Hakuba snow & ski correspondents have recently gone MIA.

The current temperature in Hakuba (Happo-one) is -4 degrees with 10cm fresh snow reported overnight. Snow is compacted so make sure your edges are sharp. There is some wind about today running about 2m/s. There has been some light snow with further snow showers expected. The sun is shining brightly and vision is good.
