Good morning from a snowy Hakuba.

The wet feel to proceedings yesterday made way to proper snow I'm happy to report.

Here's the fresh snowfall headlines as reported by the ski resorts:

Hakuba Cortina: 15-20cm at base; 20-25cm on upper areas
Hakuba Happo: 20cm (top gondola station)
Hakuba Goryu: 15-30cm
Hakuba 47: up to 30cm

Less so down here at base, but a nice new layer up on the slopes then. Should be good though visibility looks very poor in some places early on.

A few lifts affected early on by the weather conditions this morning at Happo-one and Tsugaike but hopefully they'll get going.

The forecast for the next few days is looking very positive with some potentially heavy snow and some good numbers to report tomorrow (and beyond).

Take care out there and have fun.
