Beautiful bluebird day in Hakuba today! The morning was crisp with overnight lows of -12.5 recorded in the valley, in the sun its warmed up now to around +1 at the Ski Jumps but still -8.8 at 1400m but this will no doubt warm up once the sun comes in. Wind direction is variable Southerlies but very light – no real wind to speak of even at altitude.Powder on the resorts is pretty much eaten up though still lots of soft snow around the edges and groomers are in great condition. The week to come looks like clear weather so we’ll be seeing crisp nights with warming in the sun and great alpine views.

Play safe and enjoy!
