Weather conditions: Light snowfall.
New snowfall: 5 cm
Snow depth: Hakuba Goryu Top : 235cm
Snow is falling again this morning, not a lot of accumulation as at 7:45 this morning but fine light flakes of goodness that are slowly building up and if this snow continues through today and overnight the powder tomorrow should be sweet.

Another busy day today with slippery roads and cars sliding everywhere – play it safe on the roads. Though we’re getting a fair bit of snow there’s still a lot of trees, branches etc sticking up & out, especially on lower runs of course, so be aware of this if you stray from the runs in search of powder along the edges.

Goryu are reporting 5 cm of fresh snow this morning and a base of 235 cm. The base has compressed into great groomers with a thin layer of fresh on top.

Forecast is for moderate snow this afternoon/tonight slowing by tomorrow.
