Hakuba Snow Report: 25 January, 2012

To say there’s been a lot of snow in Hakuba in the last 18 hours is an understatement!Hakuba Cortina was the standout AGAIN with 70cm of freshies on the top slope. Some lifts were closed there due to avi danger but all courses were open by later today. Snow is falling steadily tonight and so tomorrow should be a good good day!

A comment from Mark on the Hakuba Cortina Facebook about today’s action on the slopes.

“Excitement levels were super high while waiting for the lifts to open. We rode absolutely wonderful nipple deep powder all day long until our stomachs were screaming for pizza and our legs for onsen. It was hard to let our stomachs and legs win the battle when we were still finding fresh tracks mid afternoon, but we were more than happy with our day when they did.”

A lucky boarder getting in amongst some on-piste soft stuff at Hakuba Goryu today

 Happy Australia Day for tomorrow everyone. Don’t forget about drinks at the Whitehorse Lodge.
