[Updated report]

Good morning from Hakuba. We have more snow - this is what the ski resorts are reporting this morning:

Hakuba Goryu: 5cm (Toomi base); 20cm (top)
Hakuba 47: 10cm (base and top)
Hakuba Happo-one: 10cm (top of Riesen quad)

I am measuring 8cm. It sure doesn't feel like April at the moment with lovely fresh snow on the ground and a really decent amount up there on upper slopes. Conditions should be excellent this morning.

The clouds might disperse more as the day goes on and we might even get some sunshine before the end of today. A high of about 4C is forecast here in the village this afternoon.

When might this late season snow surprise continue until? Well, we are likely going to see clearer skies and warmer conditions from tomorrow for a few days, but there appears to be more snow on the forecast around Monday next week?! When we look back at the story of this season this last burst of snowfall is going to really stand out.

I hope some of you can get to enjoy it.
