It's a really great morning to everyone from Hakuba. Can you tell I'm happy? ;)

Yes, we are having a tremendous return to winter conditions at the moment. Don't you just love fresh snow.

Resorts reporting some good numbers this morning - up to 35cm at Hakuba Goryu and Hakuba 47, up to 40cm at Hakuba Cortina... details as we have them added below. I reckon it'll be more as sometimes it's really quite unclear as to whether that's for the 24 hours or 'since the previous evening'.

Around where I am in the village since yesterday the number I'm going to add to the report is 25cm.

With snow still falling and adding to those numbers, it's a good decent layer of snow which will transform conditions. (Also adding a level of potential danger as well - don't get too excited to lose the safety first thinking).

Love it.

Limited visibility though out there, and the weather conditions might affect some higher lifts this morning - see below for any info currently available.
