Not bad for November!

We’re having an early bonanza here in Hakuba. Last weeks opening was sensational with deep powder on the opening day November 21st and even better when the whole of the upper mountain opened at Goryu/47 and happo on the 22nd together with blue skies.

The temperatures have gotten a bit milder since, but just to let you know that the high alpine is still in good nick, some friends have just returned with some pics from today of the north and south bowls of Happo.

A pretty sick start to the season! Heres to a great season!
