Morning from Hakuba.

I had some fresh (though rather heavy and wet) snow to report, from myself and from the resorts themselves:

My observation at base: 3cm
Hakuba 47: 5-10cm
Hakuba Goryu: 3-10cm
Hakuba Happo-one: 0cm
Hakuba Cortina: 0cm

...but unfortunately, it's now raining here in the village. But, happily it is snowing at higher elevations.

Yesterday by around mid-afternoon cloud have covered most of the sky above the village with snow starting to fall once dark.

And so here we are this morning. We are hoping and expecting things to get colder as the day progresses and remaining rain to turn into decent snowfall down to base once again. Hopefully sometime this morning - with me being able to report more snow in my next report.

Until then!
