Morning from Hakuba, where there's more snow to report.

A bit of snow falling higher up yesterday afternoon and resorts reporting up to 10cm at higher elevations this morning...

Hakuba 47: 10cm
Hakuba Goryu: 0cm (Iimoro) - 10cm (top)
Hakuba Happo-one: 5cm
Hakuba Cortina: 2-5cm

Snow is falling now here in the village and it looks like it's pretty limited visibility in places on the mountains.

Tomorrow sun is expected and it should be warming things up a little.

As we head towards the end of March, some lifts and courses are now starting to close for the season at some of the resorts that remain operating.

I will try to keep any news for each resort updated below, and when things start to get more restricted next month I will go into more details so you can keep a track on exactly what is open.
