Morning from Hakuba.

It looks like we're going to get some great views in today.

Not much in terms of new snow to report this morning - and resorts report up to 10cm fresh - and it looks like we are going to be treated today with cloud early on already starting to clear up. Often get some amazing dramatic views when this happens. We are expecting fine, clear skies later today and tomorrow from the start of the day and maybe a day or two of slightly milder temperatures as well.

Snow doesn't look like being too far away though with more due from Monday onwards.

So make the most of the blue skies while you can.

The Tree Riding Zone over at Hakuba 47 will be open from today. The resort describes it as 'a course for the adventurous, seeking a thrilling winter sports experience.' The area is ungroomed and unsupervised. You need to sign up and agree to the rules and also wear a fetching high visibility jacket to use the TRZ. Registration and all that stuff ovet at the school center at the resort.

It should be a very fine weekend. I hope you can enjoy it.
