Morning from Hakuba.

And we have some interesting conditions this morning. Not the coldest of mornings, but a bit wild.

Here's what Happo-one are saying:

"Due to electrical thunder storm & lighting this morning Happo-one has temporarily suspended all lift operations. Opening times of lifts are expected to be delayed."

Hakuba 47 is also on standby, as is the top of Hakuba Goryu - at the time of writing.

So it's pretty wild at the moment. Scary is a word I'm hearing as well!

The good news is that there's a layer of fresh snow on the ground - varying numbers being reported but up to 20-30cm being reported in places as we approach 9am - it's coming down thick and fast as well at the moment so I would expect more cm to be adding up quite quickly if this continues.

At least let's hope the stormy conditions ease off (not the snow) to let everywhere open up...

Take care!
