Hello and good morning from Hakuba.

Yesterday it warmed up once again and we went from the fine start to clouding over and then some rain unfortunately - though it was snowing higher up and a few resorts are reporting a few cm or so higher up.

It's currently around +2C here in the village and we seem to have had some sleet/rain overnight with a dusting to be seen in places. Very cloud with a lot of fog around, so limited visibility in many areas.

Saw a few accidents on the slopes yesterday, hopefully nothing too serious. Check your speeds, there'll be some more fast runs out there this morning and with the limited visibility as well...

Another mild day tomorrow, to be followed by that line-up of snowmen on the forecasts from Tuesday. They look really happy too. Fingers crossed they'll be making us happy!
