Good morning from Hakuba. The clouds stuck around for the most part yesterday

Early on it seems to be a case of cloudy on the south side of the valley and patches of blue to the North. Some shadows and the sun peeking through at times again.

New snow of 1-5cm depending on your location around Hakuba. I would have thought more than that on upper slopes but apparently not, in Hakuba anyway. The Hakuba Cortina resort just to the north in Otari this morning is reporting up to 40cm of new snowfall this morning, so if that is to believed - and I have no reason to doubt it - then I know where I would be heading if I were having a day on the slopes. Tsugaike Kogen also apparently got a decent amount.

It is a cold -6 degrees at the moment with a wind at 2m/s. It looks like it will clear later today with the sun beaming through the clouds over the mountains. The upper parts of the mountains should be lovely to ski and ride on today especially if that clears up.

Clear skies tomorrow but it should hopefully stay cold. Still doesn't look like there's much snow on the horizon well into next week so we will have to make the most with what there is out there.

Tomorrow is the first day of a three day weekend here in Japan, as Monday is a national holiday. We can expect things to get pretty busy out there. Early start recommended! Should be a fun weekend.
