We are back to snowy conditions this morning in Hakuba. Hakuba 47 are reporting the most with 15-20cm of fresh snowfall up top and 10-15cm at base. Curiously Goryu and Cortina only reporting a cm or two, but that's probably just a bit 'old' data as we definitely have a nice new cover of snowfall once again down to village. And it is actually really coming down nicely now as I write this report. Perhaps a bit of the heavier variety of snow, but looking out of the window now I'm sure no-one is going to complain! The roads are covered white this morning and I think it is going to be pretty much poor visibility out on the slopes everywhere in the region this morning.

There's not much of a wind at the moment, it's more a case of visibility this morning. If you're fine with that though there should be some great snow conditions out there once again this morning. Right now it is about -1 degrees in the village.

Once this snow clears up, tomorrow we will once again see the sun and it will warm up to perhaps around +10 degrees. Sounds unlikely looking at what is happening right now, but that's spring for you! More snow on Saturday. It's not over yet, that's for sure.

Hope you can come and enjoy!
