Hakuba Snow Report March 20th

Rain this morning and the resorts really looked crappy with dirty snow and ground poking through everywhere but things have cheered up a bit with the slowly diminishing hangover.

Looks like bad visibility on top…checking out the comp at the High Cascade Park might be the best thing to do today. Some gusty Nor-Wester’s on top of Happo and only 5 degrees in the valley after pushing into the low 20’s yesterday.

Sun forecast for tomorrow, rain Sunday with some snowmen making their mark on the radar at this point. Bit too early to tell though stranger things have happened…
