Good morning everyone.

It was a cold day yesterday and some fine conditions to be enjoyed, with some snow falling during the day though I noticed 47 (for example) reporting 'not much' in terms of new cm. Visibility remained limited in most places.

Light snow this morning with just a little on the ground and apparently 5-10cm or so on the ski resorts with snow falling at the moment too.

So here's what the resorts are reporting:

Hakuba Cortina: 10+cm
Hakuba Happo-one: 10cm (top of Riesen)
Hakuba Goryu: 5cm (top)

Varying visibility this morning - fairly decent lower down but limited in higher areas with the mountains shrouded in cloud.

-----

Just to add to what I wrote yesterday after reading a few comments:

I am guessing that almost all of you reading this report do not want me to be making up numbers just to make things sound perfect like some kind of marketing brochure.

Don't worry, I'm never going to be doing that. I'll report what I see (backed up by a few reference points) and what the ski resorts are reporting.

If you want to read a marketing brochure, why not just go read one of them...
