Hakuba Snow Report: Spring type day in Hakuba

Yesterday was a little bit warm, almost like Spring, as March kicked off with sunny skies. Today has seen cloudy skies emerging but it’s still reasonably warm (around +2). The snow is packed and groomed but softening as the day goes on. Hopefully some snow forecast for the weekend.

For those interested the Heli Ski/Snowboard operation and Tsugaike Ropeway starts up this weekend.

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

Happo-one 190cm
Tsugaike 250cm
Goryu 285cm
Hakuba 47 231cm
Iwatake 180cm
Norikura 190cm
Cortina 340cm
Kashimayari 160cm

The three peaks looked gorgeous this morning (7AM) before the clouds came in.
