TOKYO Hakuba, a northern Japan Alps village at the foot of some of the country's most popular ski resorts, has a problem: global warming could leave the area without the powder snow that has long been its lifeblood. Famed for its abundant "J-Pow," as the fluffy stuff is affectionately known by those who seek out waist-deep descents, the site of a number of the 1998 Olympics skiing events is experiencing a winter so warm that snow is thin on the ground.
