Got rather warm yesterday... a few people spotted out there without jackets even. Sun, blue sky, cloud, not much wind, warm-ish conditions. A good day and quite a lot of folk turning up for the holiday too.

Back to a few more normal weekdays before the weekend.

This morning it's fairly clear, but cloudy, and we are expecting snow before the end of the day. Once it gets going, snow clouds should be over Hakuba and delivering through until at least Saturday and maybe into Sunday. Temperatures should drop considerably as well.

There's some heavy snow forecast so look for some good numbers coming up over the next few reports -- hopefully!
