Good morning from Hakuba.

It was good to meet some fresh snow again yesterday. Wasn't quite peak season light powder, but it sure was fun. And the sun came out to celebrate too.

This morning it's clear blue skies and sunshine from early on. Beautiful sunrise and that great blue sky/white mountain contrast thing going on now.

It is a cold morning but it will be warming up during the day with temps perhaps reaching double digits.

There's no more fresh snow to report, but I think it should be a very good morning. I recommend getting out before it warms up too much...

Nighta is free at Goryu tonight, apparently. Yey!
