Good morning from Hakuba.

My experience yesterday was some hard spring like conditions in the morning with the sun softening things up by the afternoon. Fine weather with a mix of sun, blue sky and cloud through the day.

This morning it's a pretty chilly start so with no fresh snowfall to report we can expect some hard conditions again first thing.

There's some windy conditions being reported by the resorts which might affect some lifts - at the time of writing the top lifts are Happo-one are on hold, though I can't see any other major disruptions.

The forecast is still looking very good for heavy snow in the coming week. Should be starting later on in the day tomorrow. Come on!!!!!
