Merry Christmas and good morning from Hakuba.

It would have been nice to be able to report fine clear skies after 30cm of fresh snow overnight but unfortunately it's a much less appealing set of things to report this morning. It's a mix of rain/sleet down below and snow and wind up top.

And actually as I am about to post this report the rain is turning into snow in some base areas which is good to see and hopefully we'll be getting snowed on properly down here too sooner than later today. And I am pleased to see that the forecast is still looking good for decent snow for most of this week.

Fresh snow to report from the upper areas this morning is 5cm by Happo-one, 1-3cm by Hakuba Cortina, and 47/Goryu are also reporting up to 10cm of snow.

Early on this morning strong winds are affecting the top Line E lift at Hakuba 47 and it looks like many lifts are on hold at Tsugaike Kogen and the top lifts at Happo-one are also affected.

That's about it for today. Hope to bring you news of fresh snow on the ground tomorrow morning.

I hope you have a good day wherever in the world you are!
