Morning from Hakuba. Some fresh snow on the ground this morning.

Some pretty cool views in places this morning - take a look at the Happo webcam image posted below. Sea of clouds. Impressive scenery and I wish I were up there right now!

The clouds seem to be in the process of clearing and the sun might be with us by this afternoon with a high temp or around +5 degrees forecast.

Tomorrow should be cooler but according to the forecast there doesn't seem to be forecast on the menu.

One bit of news, or is that 'pre-news'!

As you will probably know if you read these reports all the time, the data for reported snowfall on the mountain for each resort is noted in each report - in the area below - but we're trying to think of a way to make that data clearer. It involves deciding on things like which actual data to use, from where, and how to display it.

This won't be something that will be happening for this season and no promises at this stage but looking forward to next season we're going to be trying to do something on that score.
