A very good morning from Hakuba where we have lots of new snowfall.

Unfortunately for me I have to head into Nagano City this morning but for those venturing out onto the mountains, it should be a good one to say the least.

Lots of different numbers to report from around the skijo - Hakuba 47 said they had 35cm of fresh up at Line C yesterday afternoon... and another 35cm this morning. If I'm not mistaken, that makes for 70cm up there. Tasty. Happo-one was also reporting over 50cm on upper slopes.

This morning Cortina is posting 20-30cm and Hakuba Goryu is reporting 30cm up on Alps Daira.

Down at base here I have at least 20cm outside my place.

Hopefully you should get the picture - there should be lots of fresh everywhere this morning. Top conditions to enjoy. Just be careful out there and put on your best goggles to maximise vision... visibility limited once again this morning.

This morning so far it's been snowing on and off but heavy snow possible today and tonight too. It's quite windy too apparently on upper areas with top lifts at Hakuba Goryu, Happo-one and Tsugaike Kogen seem to be affected at the beginning of the day. Keep an eye on that situation if you are heading out.

It's the Happo-one Fire Festival tonight if you want some cultural fun this evening... head over to the Nakiyama area, starting at 7:30pm.
