ON THE GROUND REPORT
Mar 14 2022 07:53 AM: Hakuba ski resorts are now in a spring diurnal phase of the season, meaning a freeze/thaw cycle of snow conditions. Expect crust /icier snow on higher shaded slopes until the sun and warm air softens up the snow. Lower slopes and sun affected slopes will have corn snow and more slushy conditions as the spring ski season progresses. Watch out for buried hazards, trees and cracks/holes as the snowpack melts. Enjoy the rest of the long ski season (until early May) as this will be the last snow report of 2021-2022. See you next year!
