Hakuba Snow Report: 20 Jan 2013. Light snow falling

Hakuba Snow Report

The Hakuba Snow Report comes from Norikura this morning where there is light snow falling on top of about 30cm new snowfall. It’s Childrens Day so kids under 12 get to ride free today.

The snow has firmed and a little sloppy on-piste but still lots of soft and fluffy stuff on the side.

A warning: Avalanche danger is ever present. Watch out for others, have the right equipment and know how to use it. Hakuba avalanche bulletins can be found here.

Update: Here’s a pic of the recent avi area in Hakuba Goryu which comes from the ski patrol blog (in Japanese)
