Hakuba Snow Report: 25th February, 2012

Sorry for the gap between reports – been otherwise occupied.

Quite a busy day in Hakuba today and a bit warm as well. Temperature at the base was around 0℃ with no wind. Visibility was quite poor at many of the resorts – ranging from 50 to 200 metres at the top but clearer down low. The piste was fairly soft with about 15cm of fresh snow but a hard bottom layer and a bit heavy near the base of the slopes.

Current snow depths in Hakuba (thanks to Snow Navi):

Happo-one 190cm
Tsugaike 260cm
Goryu 290cm
Hakuba 47 228cm
Iwatake 185cm
