I don't have any snowfall to report on this Christmas morning from Hakuba here in the village, though it seems there has been a dusting of new snow on higher elevations. Goryu reporting a deep 1cm of new snowfall, and Hakuba Cortina up to 3cm! Never mind, it is still very much a white Christmas.

Lots of blue in the mix as well as we have lovely blue skies to provide a neat contrast with all the white. The sun is out and just a few clouds around and hardly any wind at all. So another lovely day.

Snow will soon be falling again though. Look to it starting overnight Thursday and maybe through into Saturday.

There isn't much to report from the resorts this morning as everywhere seems to be open as normal. The only thing I can notice is that the Kita One quad lift at Happo-one is going to be closed today for some sort of maintenance. Plan accordingly if you want to get higher and get the gondola or the Kokusai lifts to reach the higher runs.

Best wishes for Christmas!
