Wow!

Let's quickly get past the wind of yesterday and report -- we have decent snowfall in Hakuba this Sunday morning, folks. :)

Check this out, headlines first. This is how much snow the resorts are reporting:

Hakuba Happo-one: 25cm at Gondola top station
Hakuba Goryu: 10cm (base); 30cm (top)
Hakuba 47: 10cm (base); 20cm (top) - they are reporting close on 20cm in some areas near base
Tsugaike Kogen: they have increased their upper official snow depth by 30cm

!

We are reporting 8-10cm from base areas.

There's snow along the side of the roads and everywhere is looking 'winter' once again.

Bottom line? It should be a particularly exciting April morning and people who are hear absolutely need to get their gear on and check it out.

Fantastic.

And that is all for today. I hope you can enjoy it. I am going to.

(Fingers crossed wind isn't a factor today but it looks like it might be at Happo and Tsugaike at the start of the day. Best to check directly with the resorts if you plan to be out).

See you tomorrow!
