Good morning from Hakuba and here we are on April 8th and I have some snowfall to report.

Back to yesterday first and it was light rain on and off during the day but quite a cold day... with snow later on!

This morning Happo-one report 5cm of fresh snow and Hakuba 47 are reporting 3-5cm as well. Just a bit down at base areas. It kind of feels a bit like early season this morning. A bit more please.

Not deep of course bit it'll be fun to try out a bit of fresh for a change.

Things are due to start warming up again from tomorrow to remind us that it's getting on for mid-April. Hopefully we'll be able to avoid rain over the weekend.
