Good morning from Hirafu.

Another cold morning with a current temperature of -10 degrees and just a few cm of new snowfall to report and quite calm here at village level though the avalanche report tells us to to expect winds of around 10m/s around noon today. For now all resorts look set to go for the day.

Weather conditions are currently cloudy with light snow being reported by Grand Hirafu but nothing major. Fingers crossed we'll get back into larger snowfall numbers from later on tomorrow.

There's not much else to report really this morning, so until tomorrow!
