Conditions were rather... blustery... out on the mountain yesterday. Happo was largely closed for lots of the day and other places were limited due to the windy conditions. I made my way up to the top of Goryu in the afternoon along with a few other hardy souls. It kept on snowing, at times lovely great big flakes. 20cm or so during the day yesterday and another 10cm to add to that by this morning.

Snow conditions were excellent, weather and general visibility less so!

This morning I can see much more and the sun is making an early morning appearance too. There's quite a bit of blue sky up there, with some cloud hanging around covering the mountain backdrop to Hakuba. A cold morning and about minus seven degrees now in the Hakuba village area. Snow showers possible according to the local forecast, but it feels like the clear up may be happening now. Tomorrow might be bluebird time. From tomorrow through until the end of the week we can expect some milder temperatures with another topup of snow currently forecast just before the weekend.

Looks like most resort areas are open today, though it seems that the top lifts at Happo - including Skyline - remain closed, so the wind still causing some issues up there apparently. Cortina mostly open with the Number 4 lift moving and earlier on the Number 5 being checked.

Conditions today should be excellent, and the same avalanche advice applies. There's an abundance of untouched powder out there on lift-serviced terrain. Hope you can get to enjoy it.
