Good morning from Hakuba.

I'm keeping it fairly short this morning because too many words are unnecessary.

There's no cm of fresh snow being reported this morning, but it is remaining very cold and the sun is out. Thin high cloud but blue sky too, and it should just be an excellent day all round.

If you're not excited about the prospect of what's today should be like, you're just... silly!

No excuses allowed. :)

Hope to see some of you out there.
