Good morning from Hakuba.

Not a very appealing day yesterday with rain and a bit of wind. Not for me, thanks.

From what I heard the rain turned into snow later on higher up but this morning there is just a dusting to report:

Hakuba 47: up to 5cm
Hakuba Cortina: 1-3cm
Hakuba Happo: 2cm (top gondola station)

This morning we have cloudy skies and it feels colder too, which is good.

After the rain yesterday, some blowy winds and lower temperatures overnight and this morning I expect some icy conditions first up this morning.

Forecasts seem to show the chance of sunshine making an appearance during the day today. And sunny skies due tomorrow too.
