Silver turned to blue yesterday. After that dull start to the day by early afternoon there were breaks in the cloud cover and increasing amounts of blue sky. Mid afternoon and it was lovely clear conditions and the sun was shining down.

This morning we don't have any fresh snowfall to report, and the clouds are back. Hardly any wind for the moment. Not much of the mountains to be seen this morning.

And... snow has started to fall again and the local forecast is for snow to continue today and tomorrow as well, possibly clearing up by Sunday when the sun will be back. It's a relatively mild morning again and right now close to around zero at village level, with a temperature of -3.5C up on the Usagidaira part of Happo-one. Earlier on Hakuba 47 reported -7C from the top area of the resort.

Tomorrow will likely be colder and possibly some stronger winds, though probably not enough to affect lift operations on the mountains. We'll just have to see how that develope. Like I said, possible sun on Sunday, and one eye on Monday when some potentially heavy snowfall will be with us.
