Morning from Hakuba.

While we were treated to some more wet conditions in the village, the upper slopes were getting more fresh snow and overnight up to 30cm of fresh snowfall is being reported by Happo-one, 20cm being reported by Hakuba Goryu and 15cm reported by Hakuba 47. Remember these are numbers that the ski resorts themselves are putting out there... I'm just reporting them on to you. Great to see those numbers though and it means conditions on upper areas of resorts should be good this morning.

Less so on lower areas, many of which are still struggling which very meagre amounts of snow.

This morning there is lots of cloud around jostling for position but there's some blue sky on show too and the sun showing through at times. Hopefully before long the snow clouds will take over and show some leadership!

The forecasts are still totally promising lots of snow this week, through at least into early next week. Let's see it!

We want that snow storm. Now!

A follow up to the message we posted yesterday

Just wanted to take the opportunity to thank everyone who sent us messages of support and comments following the message that we posted on the report pages yesterday.

It was really encouraging to read all the sincere comments that we have received. And from so many people as well. Must admit, we were a bit shocked at the response! We really appreciate it.

Some people asked what they can do to help us. Probably the biggest help is to simply let other people know about SnowJapan and what we do. Either by just telling friends who might be interested, or by posting a link to any page within SnowJapan.com (links are a big help; no need to ask). While we are already highly discoverable on these here internets, believe it or not there are still folk out there who haven’t found us! ;)

Again, thank you very much for your comments and support and sorry that we can’t reply to them all individually.
