Hakuba Snow Forecast
This is it ... the next six days of sun, snow, hot or cold, or a complete mixture of all four probably! Of course, being the mountains conditions can change rapidly and can even be different from one side of the valley to the other. Make sure you head out prepared for all conditions - don't forget your sunscreen, hat, gloves, thermal pants, and sun-glasses/goggles; inevitably you will use them all.
The data is taken at mid station on Hakuba 47, which you could argue is the center of the resort.
Our eyes and ears in the resort can give you an a prompt and honest report when snow falls - allowing you to keep abreast of the latest information and perhaps sneak a cheeky weekend's skiing in. Over the past years we've found that some of the best snow in Hakuba falls when the resort - and therefore the slopes - are all but empty. These happy occurrences have provided us with some of the best skiing we've ever had - and often come at quiet times in the season when many of the best deals are to be found. By signing up for dump alerts you'll find out about the snow as soon as we do and so get a chance to benefit too!
