Morning from Hakuba on this last day of February. Can you believe that?!

Snow during the day yesterday, Hakuba 47 reporting 20cm of it up there, and just a bit more overnight with snow on the ground this morning.

This morning resorts reporting varying amounts of snow as noted below... Cortina 20cm, Goryu 10cm, Happo 10cm... there should be some fresh to find out this morning.

It feels quite cold as well and while there is still a lot of cloud around, forecasts tell us to expect sun today and the skies to clear with a high of around +3C later this afternoon.

Something should be falling by tomorrow afternoon again - hopefully snow. Stay cold please!

Have a fun Saturday. I'm going to get out there, hope you can too.
