Vintage Hakuba – Jan 5th – Jan7th

Haven’t posted for a few days but what a few days its been. The 5th was deep all over the mountains with the runs from the day before sporting bottomless powder again the next morning.

Cortina was closed due to too much snow but opened its top lift for the 6th with 55cm of fresh lying in wait. The sun obliged with a bluebird day.

Last night we got another 20-30cm at the snowy end of the valley on top of the settled metre or so from the last few days. The combination of the settled fast and springy underlayer with 30cm of fresh on top was just perfect.

Here’s a brief video montage of the last few days.
