Hello from here in Hakuba and yes, there's more snow to report.

Strong winds were blowing around last night and there's still some wind this morning (looks like top lifts at Happo-one currently stopped due to those conditions), but there's new snow to play in. I'm measuring 16cm since my last report and here's what the ski resorts are publishing this morning:

Hakuba Cortina: 30cm
Hakuba 47: up to 25cm
Hakuba Goryu: 10-25cm
Hakuba Happo-one: 10cm

After today we should be getting clearer skies and perhaps some sunshine though we're back to snow sometime on Friday, particularly at higher elevations. (Some forecasts are daring to mention rain in base areas. I strenuously object very to the very suggestion! Hopefully that'll fix itself up before happening.)

Anyway for now the fresh snow conditions continue and it should be a very good day.

Wrap up well... it's cold out there!
