You want snow? We got it! It has been an amazing few days for snowfall in Hakuba and I hope that some of you have been able to enjoy it.

Hakuba Goryu this morning is reporting another 40cm of fresh snowfall yesterday, and Hakuba 47 reporting another 30-40cm. Not a bad haul for the weekend?!

Yesterday in all my excitement I renamed the Goryu 'Milky Four' lift the 'Milky Way' lift, my mistake - though actually today that lift is now closed and Goryu plans to open up the Iimori area again from the weekend. More news from Goryu is that they plan to have the Champion Dynamic downhill course open as soon as they have got it ready today, and they also hope to open the Champion Expert course from tomorrow.

Hakuba 47 are opening up more today. The upper part of Route 1, and Routes 2,3,4,5,6 and 8 are planned to be open this morning so a large part of the resort should be open.

At Happo-one, lifts that are open this week are as yesterday. I think we can hope to expect more opening up soon.

Tsugaike Kogen are now reporting a whopping 240cm of snow on the upper slopes of the resort, though at the time of writing this morning strong winds on the mountain are preventing anything other than the lower part of the Gondola there from opening.

The snow continues to fall, the roads are covered in snow. It's a cold -3C degrees this morning. It feels like mid-winter.

Brilliant!

(Forecast tells us that conditions should calm down and clear up somewhat around mid-week).
