There's not a whoile lot of new snow to report this morning since yesterday and the heavy snowfall that we have been experiencing since the weekend seems to have eased off now. We did well out of it though and it has really changed things just in those few days.

This morning it is a little warmer and hardly any wind at all but light snow is likely to be falling throughout the day. The calmer conditions will likely be giving the resorts a bit of time and space to sort things out and hopefully prepart for more areas to open up.

On that subject...

The headline for today I suppose is that Hakuba 47 have said that from tomorrow (Thursday), all of their runs will be open. As if it's peak season! Nice.

For Thursday and Friday, Happo-one plan to have the following lifts operating - Gondola, Alpen Quad, Kurobishi No2 quad, Panorama Pair, Happo Riesen quad.

Hakuba Iwatake plans to open for the season on Saturday and should have no problem doing so.

Looking at the latest forecast, we can expect to see the sun tomorrow shining over the valley and it does look like we are going to enter a drier stretch into next week. I'll also mention the fact that warmer temperatures and rain are probable on Saturday, in the hope that such things might be avoided!
