Snow and more snow!

It's great to be able to say that.

The snow has continued falling and this morning the reports are reporting this much fresh snow:

Hakuba Goryu: 30-40cm
Hakuba 47: 30cm
Hakuba Happo-one: 50cm
Hakuba Cortina: 20-30cm

Interesting to see Hakuba Cortina not 'winning' the new snow biggest number award in the past few days... it's often been the case that they report the most.

It's really great to see pretty much all of Hakuba Happo-one now open and also they are going to be starting night skiing in the Nakiyama area from tonight.

But anyway, wherever you choose to ski or snowboard this morning there will be lots of fresh snow. And that is exactly what we want. This is the Hakuba I love so much. I love Hakuba whenever, of course, it's just best to see it like this!

I'm getting all emotional... (笑)

Not much more to say other than please enjoy it - wrap up well and please do take extra (extra) care. Best to stick to the runs today, there's enough fresh for everyone.
