It has been a while since my last report from Hakuba and it has got quite a lot colder since then and the odd bit of snow dusting the tops of the mountains as well.

This morning it is a chilly 8 degrees here in the village early on and a thick blanket of cloud low down covering the village... from where I am now I can't see much other than this cloud. But go just a bit higher up the mountain side and you break through the clouds and it looks like we will be in for a fine day here in Hakuba. A high of around 14 degrees is forecast for later on in the day.

What's more interesting is what is just around the corner. It does look like from tomorrow we will see a lot of rain here in the village but higher up temperatues will be in minus territory and we should see potentially a decent amount of snow fall up there. How much and how far down it will come, we'll just have to see but it does look likely to be the strongest hint of winter yet.

Exciting stuff!

Reports from now on will be more regular as we approach the season.

Oh yes, resort opening dates. Here's the official word, all depending on how snow of course. The resorts that hope to open within November are usually good at opening as soon as they can when there's enough snow.

Hakuba Goryu - late November
Hakuba 47 - late November
Happo-one - 23rd November
Tsugaike Kogen - 23rd November
Hakuba Norikura - mid December
Cortina - 14th December
Hakuba Iwatake - 20th December

Come on snow. Let's be having lots of you!
