Good morning from Hakuba.

No new snow to report this morning other than a slight dusting on the mountains and a few resorts reporting the odd cm.

Right now the sun is out, there's cloud around but lots of blue sky and sunshine as well... a beautiful morning. It's quite cold as well actually which is always good.

Is that 'heavy snow' I see on the forecast for tomorrow night right now? That would be great, wouldn't it.

Things do look set to get somewhat warmer again come mid-week, and so the more we can get in the better. (But that goes without saying that, doesn't it?)

Have a fun Saturday.
