It was cloudy and poor visibility for the most part yesterday on the slopes with snow falling, though this morning there is no new snow to report in the village. The resorts are reporting just a sprinkling on snow on the mountains. The most being reported is by the Hakuba Cortina resort who who say that there's another 5-10cm of snow on their runs since yesterday.

Winds at elevation continued to overnight but should become less this morning. Caution on any windloaded areas is advised as soft slabs in those areas are likely to be triggerable.

It's a bright but cloudy start to the day in Hakuba with the sun breaking through at times. A fair amount of blue sky up there as well. Forecast says cloud/light snow for the day so perhaps it won't completely clear up, and we have clear skies forecast for the coming few days.

At 9am this morning it's -4 degrees in the village and there's just a slight wind down at village level.

It seems those winds remains on the mountain though early on. As far as I can tell so far this seems to be affecting the top Grat quad at Happo-one (which seems to have had a late start but is now operating) and also the top pair lifts at Hakuba Goryu. The Gondola is still operating at Goryu but only for people to ski down the hill again. Or snowboard of course. ;) These things can of course change during the day with conditions.

Other than that is seems like we're open as planned for the weekend and we can expect things to be busy out there today.
