It didn't end up much in terms of cm yesterday, though the poor visibility on the slopes continued through the day. Couldn't see much of anything late afternoon up on Iwatake and a friend came back from Happo with a similar story.

Anyway, resorts in Hakuba are just reporting a slight snowfall, with the most coming from the Hakuba Cortina in Otari, which is logging in 10-15cm of fresh. So that would be where the fresh is today.

It's -6 degrees at the moment, with just a light breeze. Quite a bit of cloud around but blue sky as well and the sun shining through at times. It should keep cold today and overnight, with more cloud/sun forecast for tomorrow.

Even after that serious dumpage a few days ago, in the never ending wish for fresh snow to fill in tracks left by holiday masses, we would like some more snow now! Looks like we are going to have to wait a short while. Around Tuesday/Wednesday it will get a bit warmer, with the next snow forecast for Thursday. More sun than snow though before then.
