Another beautiful day here today. It's still cold though, so don't go thinking just because it's sunny you don't need a jacket. It'll be -10 or thereabouts on the hills.

Conditions were great yesterday and lots of Western faces were spotted at 47, including some of the locals.

The season this winter started very early back at the first weekend in November and the lifts are scheduled to operate until Golden Week at the beginning of May. That makes this the halfway point of the season, and what a season it has been so far. It's been a lot colder than predicted and we've got a great base for the start of February. Let's hope the great conditions continue.

Weekend visitors to Hakuba with a mobile phone may be interested to know that there are live cameras on Route 148 that you can access from your phone. The road gets very busy late in the day on Sundays and National Holidays, and using your phone allows you to check the road before setting off.
