It's going to be a fine day today with blue skies and sunshine from early in the morning.

A few things to remind us that we don't really actually have much snow yet...

Hakuba 47 are saying that they plan to close Line E tomorrow (Tuesday) and on 4th December (Friday) due to lower temperatures expected on that day and so a chance to get the snow-making machines going. Apparently it's not possible to have the machines going as well as the lifts moving - some electricity consumption issue. Hopefully nature will help us all out and just give us a good old dump that will kick everything into action.

Happo-one are opening their Panorama course again today, but also mentioning that plans beyond today are not fixed. Perhaps this is mindful of the forecast milder and sunny conditions for today.

The forecast is still looking promising for later in the week and definitely for higher elevations.
