Good morning from Hakuba.

I had a great day yesterday, I hope some of you might have been able to enjoy it too.

The only snowfall that I can see being reported by resorts this morning is 1cm by Happo-one up by the Riesen lift. Other than that, no other boasting of snow this morning. (Though Hakuba 47 seem to be saying 'heavy snowfall' which is curious... perhaps more is falling higher up? I do not know). Visibility does look limited on some of the cams so maybe it is coming down good up there. I would be all for that!

It is a mostly cloudy start to the day with a little light snow falling in places down in lower areas. Perhaps a bit more of that through tomorrow before a warm up and clearer skies due early in the week.

Have a fun Saturday wherever you are.

Planned resort closing dates are being added to the 'Notes' areas below. All subject to change and I will of course keep an eye on that info. Of course, by the time we get to May it will be upper areas only open. If you want to see how previous seasons have shaped up you can read the archive reports at any time - links below.
