Thursday 17th December

Hakuba is presently getting a good amount of SNOW! Yay! It is snowing now and we received about 15 cm of snow overnight. It is very nice to see the ground and trees in white.
Snow is expected to continue throughout the day as well.
The forecast is for continued snow over the next three days so hopefully this will allow all the resorts to open all their terrain.

It finally looks like winter has arrived and we are all happy to see the snow come, especially as we can now have a white christmas.

Presently Happo-One, Goryu, Hakuba 47 and Tsugaike are open with limited courses open. Mostly just the top lifts and one run with man-made and natural snow. More should be opening shortly.

Observed New snow: 15cm

Weather conditions: snowing
New snowfall: 12-15 cm (village)
