Hakuba 30th December, 2009

overhang from the roof

You would certainly feel this if it landed on you

The next big storm has started and we are more prepared this time with our shovels. There is a lot of snowclearing machinery in Hakuba to deal with the massive quantities of snow that is unleashed into the valley. Until it is experienced most people have no comprehension of what such a huge amount of snow can do to an area.  Everybody should be very careful when walking under eaves. The areas at either end of the White Horse Arctic are very dangerous with massive overhangs that eventually break off and crash to the ground. There is no reason to go into these areas so we do not have warning signs however we do remind parents with children to ensure they stay off the mounds of snow there.

    Massive storm by the looks of it! 1m+ in the last few days, how it is looking from your end?

    Insane conditions at the moment. Snowing again now and it looks like we are going to get over a meter from this storm also.
