Finally we have some snow overnight here in Hakuba, and it is still snowing!

We received about 4 cms in the valley this morning of nice powdery snow. This and more stuff like this is exactly what we need to move onto skiing on the whole mountains.

The snow flurries are expected to continue through today increasing in the afternoon and then into Thursday as well. Friday is looking clear then back to the snow on the weekend, so fingers crossed.

We should be having nice turns on the groomers on the areas that are open today.

Happo plan to open up some courses from tomorrow (Thursday).

Lets hope this cold weather continues and the true winter has now rolled in!
