Good morning from Hakuba.

Snow seems to be falling at higher elevations this morning but the only new reported cm that I can find from around the resorts is Happo-one adding 5cm to their official snow depths; so it looks like there might be a bit of fresh to check out this morning. Sounds like a good reason to do so!

There's a bank of cloud covering the mountains this morning with clear conditions below that at village level. It's a bit damp down here, though not raining or snowing as I post this report. There is a chance of snowfall today and tonight though so fingers crossed there.

The forecast shows clearer skies over the coming weekend and perhaps lots of sunshine. If we can't have fresh snow, might as well enjoy some early season skiing or boarding in the sun. Let's just hope it keeps on the cold side.
