Good morning from Hakuba.

I bring good news. It has started snowing! And it is actually snowing pretty too down here at base --- winter-like!

Only started a short while ago but 2cm so far as at the time of my putting this report up, and if it continues like this it will be building up and I will have more to report tomorrow. It's due to continue through until at least early tomorrow morning.

Cortina not reporting any at 7am and the only fresh snow I can find being reported is 2cm at the top of Riesen quad lift - but this was before the snow started properly a bit earlier....

Come on!!!!
