One of the downsides of an early report like yesterday is that things sometimes end up rather different from early on. Like yesterday. The day ended up being much more cloudy that early on suggested and by late afternoon snow was falling on the mountain. Not enough to bring us news of new cm of snow though and ended up just being a dusting, so new fresh to report.

Waiting for a fresh supply....

Predominantly blue skies and some clouds in the area this morning. The clouds that were nestling up there on the upper areas of the mountains have been dispersing and it has been getting clearer. There'll be some great views on show this morning.

It was mild overnight with temperatures around the village in the positive and today it might end up being around 4C.

It has been quite windy on the mountain. The gondola at Hakuba 47 was delayed but is now operating. The top Number 2 and 4 pair lifts at Goryu have been affected as well. Happo seems to be unaffected at the moment apart from the top Grat lift which is not yet moving today at the time of writing. So it's one of those days when top lifts may need to be stopped without notice, but the good news is that the forecast predicts less wind as the day progresses. So we should be ok.

It's the second day of the three-day weekend and so as you might expect, busy out there!

New snow? Should have some to report by tomorrow morning and tomorrow will likely be a snowy day. Likely clearing up Tuesday and Wednesday before more snow now on the forecast for later on in the week.
