Hakuba Snow Report 18 Dec – Sunny day at Hakuba

Its a sunny day at Hakuba with firm snow. You will need to have your edges sharp if you’re higher up today.Β  Lower down the sun is starting to soften the snow and some bumps are forming. There have been high winds further up the mountain which has prevented some lifts from operating at various times.

Even for a Monday there are some crowded car parks so people must be making the most of the early snowfalls and sunny day at Hakuba. Hoping for the expected snow from Tue-Thurs to top up with some of the nice fluffy stuff – just before the world ends on Friday. So make sure to get in some Hakuba pow before the apocalypse. πŸ˜‰
