Hakuba Snow Report: Good day for an onsen

Very miserable in Hakuba today. Bit of rain about that appears set to continue for most of the day. Temperatures are above freezing but hopefully that may turn around in the next day or two to bring forth some snow. Still a fair crowd in today so might be a good idea to take a day off to visit one of Hakuba’s many onsen.

Hakuba Snow Report: 23 February 2012

No recent snowfall in Hakuba. It’s a misty day – fairly clear at the bottom of the slopes and a little limited up higher (but clearing). We are hoping we will see some sun as the day goes on but there’s the possibility of some rain showers as well.

Current temps: 3° at Hakuba Station and -6° at the top of the lifts

Hakuba 47 186cm
Cortina 210cm
Happo-one 120cm
