What's this... blue skies and sunshine?

Light snow on mountain yesterday with perhaps a few-5cm of snow falling higher up. It was very busy as well around the open resorts yesterday, with lots of folk around and soon to be joined by more people arriving for the New Year as well. Not all of the courses at resorts being open certainly does not help in that respect of course. Expect to have to wait at some lifts, and in some cases for quite a bit.

So yes there's blue skies and the sun out this morning. Still some cloud around in places but generally nice weather... apart from some strong winds that are keeping lifts on hold at some areas.

Check for the latest but at the time of writing the lifts at Hakuba 47 were on hold as well as the upper lifts at Hakuba Goryu. It looks like Happo-one is also being affected by strong wind conditions this morning.

We are expecting some more snowfall tonight and into early tomorrow morning and then maybe next up on New Years Eve.

It is cold this morning and should remain cold through the day so snow conditions should be keeping good.

Have a fun day.
