It is a beautiful morning here in Hakuba.

A cold one too though it is going to warm up somewhat during the day - though early turns in particular should be great this morning up top.

The forecast is looking pretty exciting too with some decent snowfall expected around Tuesday onwards.

In the meantime should be nice weather today and tomorrow and places will be busy as Monday is a holiday and so it is a long weekend.
