Good morning from Hakuba.

Another beautiful start to the day today with a lot of blue sky and some cloud.

No fresh snow is being reported from around the ski areas but it's a cold morning and not much of a wind at all, so conditions should be very good.

-----

It's much quieter after the New Year period. The news in Japan is of the quickly rising Omicron cases. Still low compared with many places but quickly rising the last few days. I wonder how that is going to play out. Lets hope that a) it doesn't get too bad, translating into minimal illness and b) Japan doesn't get overly cautious and go overboard with restrictions. I'm saying that fully admitting that I have no real idea what the correct answer is or the best way to deal with it all.

Anyway, nature is truly beautiful and so I'm going to recharge on some of that goodness this morning.
