Morning from Hakuba.

Fresh snow on the ground this morning, though not the lightest and fluffiest kind. A bit heavy and wet, but certainly much better than the rain that we were worrying about. It was snowing from late morning yesterday which was good to see. It is going to be interesting to see how the snow conditions are up there this morning. Investigations required!

Anyway here's what the resorts are reporting this morning:

Hakuba Happo-one: 10-30cm
Hakuba 47: 20cm
Hakuba Goryu: 10-15cm
Hakuba Cortina: 15-20cm

It looks like some top lifts may be delayed this morning as the resorts cope with the conditions, but hopefully they'll get going quick.

Hakuba Cortina this morning are putting out a warning of dangerous avalanche conditions, and that their Number 4 and 5 lifts are closed. Wherever you are today, take care out there and be sure you know where you're going.

The forecast is looking good with colder conditions and snowfall lined up for most days in the coming week. That sounds good to me, bring it on.
