Morning from Hakuba.

Bit of a dusting of (wet) snow down close to base areas. I am being kind and awarding 1cm to the report to encourage more! Ski areas are reporting 5-10cm on the mountain. It doesn't feel particularly cold this morning and it will be relatively mild day. That might mean the current snow turning into rain. But let's hope not.

Expect some sun tomorrow, and continued mild temperatures in the coming week.

Hakuba 47 is back to being almost fully open for the weekend - and hopefully this time they will remain open during the week. Terrain wise, that is the place that has the most open.
