Snow on trees

Snow covered trees

When the domino effect occurs it can whiten out everything.

The trees in Hakuba can become so loaded with snow that they actually become a hazard. When the top falls it cascades down knocking the snow from the branches which in turn will hit the next tree like a domino effect with the whole load eventually landing on the ground and creating a white out.  It’s always a bit of fun to knock a low branch when one of your friends is walking under it. A good reason to wear a hood if you don’t trust someone.
