Good morning from Hakuba.

It's a lovely morning here with lots of blue skies and some clouds around the peaks.

A curious bunch of numbers from around the resorts this morning with 47 reporting 0cm, Goryu 0-10cm and Cortina 20cm across the mountain. Perhaps the wind of yesterday is affecting things there.

After more fine weather expected tomorrow, the forecast is looking really promising for a snowy first week of the New Year.

Excellent.

Expect places to be very busy this weekend! Busy, but loads of fun. Hope you can enjoy it.
