Fresh snow to report this morning from Hakuba.

Around 5cm on the ground here by my place in the village but resorts around the valley reporting around 10cm at base and up to 30cm on upper slopes overnight.

It's coming down very nicely at the moment as well, so the cm should be building up quite quickly once again if this continues.

Visibility generally poor.. it's the price we must pay for heavy snow.

Those who brave the conditions this morning will be rewarded with some fine fresh snow conditions. Those who wait until tomorrow - looks like they'll be able to enjoy the fresh conditions with clearer skies above Hakuba....decent chance of sun making an appearance tomorrow and it'll be slightly warmer as well.

Do keep an eye on the data below as I do go through them all and update each morning... wouldn't want you to miss those updates! Takes time to get it all together each day. Gambarimasu.
