Good morning from Hakuba.

Breaking News! Your snow headlines:

Hakuba Goryu: 30cm (Toomi), 60cm (top)
Hakuba 47: 40-50cm (top)

Hold on a moment. What's the date again? 60cm of fresh snow on Goryu?!? 40-50cm at 47? Couldn't we have had more of this kind of snow back in January?

There's some decent snow on the ground down to village too. Great to see the ground all white again. Even so, I would imagine people want to head high for that lovely deepness.

Unfortunately at the start of the day some top lifts aren't moving around the valley due to strong winds. I recommend contacting resorts for the latest there.

And what a day for Facebook to be 'down' and thereby cutting off lots of official resort information. It is limiting what I can report to you unfortunately - nothing I can do about that. (Any lessons learnt there, ski resorts? Why not put the information on your own websites at least as well as on Facebook, ok? I can never understand why they put their information on someone else's website and not their own, no matter how popular said other website is).

Anyway, obviously there's no complaints about fresh snow, so let's just enjoy it. There is lot to enjoy this morning!

:)

I will try to update this report with any further information I can gather later on, though with the 'snapshot' nature of Facebook perhaps it might not happen.
