It's an easy report today as there's really nothing much to report to you other than beautiful, almost totally clear blue skies and the sun shining down on Hakuba - warming us up again with highs approaching double digits later on. Temperatures dipped to around -3 last night here in the village area so it was pretty cold out there.

Later tomorrow into Saturday is looking more encouraging and it should get much colder over the weekend.
