Will you have a complete touring set up including avie equipment? Will be plenty of corn touring over March by the looks of it.
I have them, just contemplating is it worth bringing, if snow conditions are poor, just do more on-piste ? i heard the weather has been rather warm compared to previous years

You recommend worth going in the week of March 11?
As I learnt this year and as a lot of the Japan knowledge folk have said multiple times, anything heading towards the 2nd half of Feb and beyond can be risk especially on Honshu. You could get lucky or you could get unlucky.

So I have a request if anyone can help me. When I went to Hakuba 9 yrs ago I got some snowflake die cut stickers the were of the alphabet. Ie one snowflake, one letter. I have never seen the anywhere else. I would be externally grateful if someone came across them and could message me for the letters I seek.

Ironically this year it is much better :)
Just returned from ski trip in Hakuba, of the 5 days skiing there, i literally had 4 days of snow fall, with one of the nights getting over 20cm of new snow at the base level. Went to Happo, tsuigke kogen, iwatake, and Hakuba47/Goryu, all had very nice conditions, powdery the first day with nice groomers the day after, so definitely wouldn't rule of March skiing if you have limited options.
