How much snow do we want? Always more, of course, but for now here's the headlines that we have this morning for snowfall on upper slopes:

Happo-one - 60cm
Hakuba 47 - 40cm
Hakuba Goryu - 40cm
Tsugaike Kogen - added more than 40cm since yesterday
Hakuba Cortina - 30cm

Bottom line... lots and lots of snow falling on mountain.

There's some wind today though which may affect some lifts - the Gondola and a few lifts at Happo were affected just before but are now operating. Visibility is fairly poor out on the mountain this morning with all this snow falling, though not quite as mad as yesterday. The snow may well continue for today and into tomorrow before easing off.

We might even get to see some sun on Tuesday. Looking good for more snow later in the week again though.

It all came at once, but we couldn't really ask for more at the moment.
