Good morning everyone.

There was a bit of wind and light snow falling when I was up at Hakuba Goryu in the afternoon. Had a good few hours up there, though today will be better...!

Hakuba is enjoying some more snowfall. I have 16cm to report from base area. The Hakuba 47 resort was reporting 5cm of snow during the day yesterday and this morning 25-30cm of fresh snow on the slopes with 20cm at base.

Nice. Though with snow falling visibility looks limited in all areas.

It looks like the Iimori courses at Goryu are closed again - not sure why - and the lifts at Tsugaike Kogen are on hold at the time of writing due to 'adverse weather conditions' - perhaps the poor visibility. There doesn't feel like much of a wind down here in the village.

But if you want to check out that fresh snowfall you can take the lifts at Goryu, 47 or Happo-one to get up there.

There should be more snow to report tomorrow morning. Sunday looking good too.
