Morning from Hakuba and we have had some decent snowfall the last few days... the kind we'd like most days of the season!

Hakuba 47 were reporting 15cm of fresh snow up at 1450m point yesterday afternoon and that sounds about right for the day. Other resorts this morning also reporting numbers around 10cm.

While I do prefer myself to be out there on a clear and sunny day in terms of weather, fresh snow is more important than the weather and so I was more than happy to be out in the snow yesterday morning... as were many other people I'm sure. It did clear up somewhat at times in the afternoon but generally kept cloudy.

Unfortunately the snowfall didn't continue through the night and this morning, so there's no further build up to report.

This morning there's lots of cloud and gas around still around the mountains. I see some of the webcams show very limited visibility out there while others are much clearer. If anything it is probably going to be clearer as the day goes on today and we might end up enjoying some sunshine.

Tomorrow clear skies and sun are expected, but after that the prospect of 'heavy snow' on the forecast is looking rather exciting. It looks like there's a worrying warm up due later in the week but let's ignore that for now and just enjoy the conditions today, look forward to a fine weather day tomorrow and then that heavy snow on Tuesday. Onegai shimasu!

Have a great Sunday everyone.
