I bring good news!

After that rain and wet yesterday possibly dampening some spirits, it was snowing up on the mountains and this morning we are getting reports of some decent snowfalls up there.

Hakuba 47 - reporting 30cm of fresh
Hakuba Goryu - reporting 15cm of fresh
Happo-one - reporting 20cm of fresh
Tsugaike Kogen - reporting 20+cm of fresh

Nice.

Down here in the village you might not think it as we have only seen a slight sprinkling of snow. Luckily it's not the village that we ski or board in!

It's still snowing up there with generally pretty poor visibility. I'm sure the snow will make up for that though.

Anyway, changes in resort operations that I can tell this morning so far - Hakuba 47 are opening up this morning with the Gondola moving as well (though you need to take it back down to base just yet).

Snow clearing up and eventually the sun tomorrow?

What's looking good though is the potential for a decent blast of snow mid week. Keep all eyes on that one.
