Yesterday was a real beauty. Splendid Hakuba scenery was on tap for those who were here.

Now for some fresh snow!

And yes, it is snowing this morning with resorts already reporting up to 5cm on slopes and 5cm here in the village as well. Coming down nicely too, let's hope it can keep on coming. Moderate to heavy snowfall forecast for today and hopefully still snowing into tomorrow, so let's see how much we can get to report tomorrow morning.

The weekend forecast still shows some alarmingly warm temperatures along with rain due as the freezing line rises to above 3000m. Yikes. We can certainly be doing without any of that lot! Here's to the forecast changing, though I see that it's something that is due to be affecting large parts of Japan not just here.

Anyway today should be good, tomorrow should be better. Let's enjoy what we have. Take care out there.

Until tomorrow.

Please note that some of the Now reports may be posted later than usual tomorrow morning.
