Hakuba Snow Report for 27 January 2013.

There is great vision this morning after an early sunrise. There is 20cm fresh snow in the village on top of the approximately one metre or so that had fallen over the previous 48 hours. At Happo they are reporting that Nakiyama slopes have a depth of 160cm, Sakka has 160cm and Usagidaira 240cm. It’s cold today with temperatures between -4 and -10 degrees and a slight wind.

Evergreen reports on Friday, “The morning of the 24th saw multiple loose avalanches on all aspects. There will be high hazard due to the new snow in the last 24 hours. Stay to safe and well supported terrain and remember that Hakuba is a terrain trap waiting to happen. Don’t be the one to get trapped. Never leave the ski area boundaries unless you know where you are going and have the proper equipment and training to save your friends and reduce the risk to yourself and friends.” Don’t forget to check the avalanche report!

Should be a few less people on the slopes today as the Aussies get over their Straya Day hangovers. 😉 Unfortunately there is some rain forecast for 1st February that may spoil the party so get and make the most of it for the next 2 or 3 days at least!
