A good morning to you from here in Hakuba.

It was cold early on (and I see Hakuba 47 reporting a temperature of -9 degrees on upper areas), and there's really not that much to report this morning other than the fantastic blue clear skies over the valley. Just a few small white clouds here and there.

Sitting here behind a computer seems just plain wrong on a day like this.

It looks like resort operations are as they have been this morning and I wouldn't expect that to change until we get more snowfall.

Snow cover is fairly decent on the upper areas that are open, but snow is generally still thin on the ground especially in lower areas and we need another good snow storm (or the equivalent) to really get things going proper.

The weekly forecast isn't really showing much to get overly excited about unfortunately, though perhaps higher elevations will get some fresh around Friday though it will probably be rain at base.

For now today and tomorrow is all about blue skies, sunshine and mild conditions.
