Light rain here today but from what I am hearing from Hakuba, we are being spared the worst of it. Temps though are inverted so its colder down in the valley than up higher so it remains to be seen what happens to the snow. T

he forecast is for this weather to turn snowy today and continue to snow through Thursday.

If it comes through as predicted, looks like we are in for a lot of snow. Please!
