And it's a good morning from Hakuba.

After a grey and cloudy day yesterday, it was snowing by nighta time and this morning we have a good new layer of snow to report.

20-25cm at Goryu; 35-38cm at 47; 12cm at Happo; 20-30cm at Cortina. So differing amounts being reported but all of them coming in with fresh so it should be a very good morning on the slopes.

Variable but about 10-15cm here at village base I'd say. It doesn't feel quite as cold here at base either this morning though temperatures higher up on the mountain remain down to minus double digits. Fairly calm though and while it is not snowing while I write this it looks like snow is falling at higher elevations. Generally poor visibility on mountain as well this morning. Looks like a total foggy white-out on Happo at the moment!

So snow forecast for the day today and perhaps into tomorrow. Followed by clearer conditions and milder conditions at the end of the week, hopefully followed by snow on Saturday. There's a chance of a bit of rain before the snow though, we can just hope that bit doesn't happen. That's what the latest forecast has for us anyway.
