By lunchtime yesterday it had become more grey than blue as it clouded over, though visibility remained decent on the resorts.

Out on the slopes yesterday, fairly heavy conditions outside of the main courses giving the old leg muscles a good work out, though the groomers were a lot of fun. We got rained on a bit last night down in the village but this morning light snowfall is being reported from the resorts around the valley as noted below. Hakuba 47 are giving us up to 10cm on upper slopes, but curiously the connected Goryu say 0cm... with just a thin layer down on the Iimoro side.

I'm glad to report that it is snowing now, still a bit 'wet' lower down, but hopefully it will be snowing through the day and tomorrow. Temperatures look set to drop later today and then keep cold tomorrow. We could really do with some more good consistent snowfall to freshen things up and the weekly forecast seems promising to give us just that.

A quick look at the webcams from around the resorts this morning and I can see that visibility is pretty poor up there at the moment. Or not see, as the case may be! Not much to see at all.

Have a good day.
