Another beautiful sunny day in Hakuba. There wasn’t a cloud in the sky the last couple of days, temps were up past 17 degrees in the neighbouring city of Omachi but we still saw overnight lows here in the village of -6 degrees. Current temps are 9 degrees at 760m, 1.2 degrees at 1400m, 2.6 degrees at 2080m (our top weather station receives sun earlier than the 1400m station).No real wind today, very light Southerlies only. Same conditions as the last few days: clean groomers in the AM, turning to spring-like conditions in the sun and icing over later in the day in the shade.

Today looks to be another clear sky day with more of the same early tomorrow and possible clouds rolling in which could bring some light precipitation and overcast through Friday. Sat looks to be clear with possible light snow Sun.

Have fun out there!
