[Apologies for this report appearing a little later today - it was actually posted at 8:45am but a few technical issues prevented it from appearing until now]

Good morning from Hakuba.

After the gusty early conditions yesterday, Happo-one managed to get open from around noon which was good to hear.

Clouds moved in around the mountains and it started snowing up there.

And this morning there is some fresh snow on the ground. Just a bit here at village/base (2cm) but resorts are reporting 10-20cm of fresh - check the individual resort details below for news from each of the ski-jo.

Let's take a look at the forecasts. Still looking promising with a bit more snow today into early tomorrow and then around Thursday and Friday. It should be keeping fairly cold as well which is good; if it keeps cold conditions should keep well.

And it should be pretty decent up there this morning. I'm going to go and check!
