Merry Christmas!

Some great conditions being reported from yesterday, especially from Otari where they got a whole lot of snow as mentioned in the report yesterday. Stories of powder pockets up to 60cm waist deep over at Cortina and Tsugaike. Very nice.

May there be many more of those this season, as no doubt there will be.

Freezing temperatures early this morning in Hakuba village with temperatures down to minus double digits overnight and about -5C here in the village now. It's a cold one, for sure.

The cloud has moved in over some parts of Hakuba with just a few glimpses of sunlight from time to time over the village. So it's cloudy in the village at the moment but snow showers possible throughout the day and snow forecast overnight into tomorrow. Beyond that it looks likely we'll see clearer conditions on Thursday and Friday.

The heavy snow had an impact on some lift operations in the valley yesterday, so on days like that it is a good idea to check official resort websites for reports if lifts close/re-open. They can be found on the resort pages within SnowJapan. As much as we would like to be able to, we can't update this page in realtime.

Anyway today we had roughly 1cm of fresh snowfall in the village and few cm higher up - 5cm+ was reported by ski patrol at Happo-one. There is just a slight wind and visibility is clear up to 1200m.

Have a fun Christmas Day wherever in the world you are...
