Nice and cold in Hakuba this morning. Just a dusting of new snow at village level but up to 10cm on the slopes reported from around the resorts. Some fairly strong winds this morning but as far as I can tell all resorts are open as normal this morning.

As I mentioned temperatures have dropped a fair bit today and it's around -6C in the village now and -12C up at Usagidaira at 1440m with a 5m/s north westerly wind and gusts of over double that.

Snow is forecast for the day today and currenly the mountains are covered in cloud, it's not a day for the camera. Tomorrow should keep cold but it should be calmer and also clearer. Chance of the sun coming out to play.

In resort news, Hakuba 47's half pipe opens tomorrow. Hurray! Let's half pipe.

Monday is a national holiday in Japan - National Foundation Day - and so it's a long weekend coming up. Chinese New Year is also this coming Sunday. It's one of the busiest weekends of the season, so be prepared! You can expect places to be at their busiest over the next few days.
