Morning from Hakuba and what a lovely morning it is as well.

There's lots of blue sky with just a bit of fluffy cloud here and there and a fairly cold start to the day.

We had a fine day yesterday as well with some blue skies and sunshine to enjoy in the morning. Some clouds (or was that 'gas' as they say here) moving in on some upper areas in particular later in the afternoon making for limited visibility in places.

There's no fresh snow to report since my last report, but starting tonight and going through the whole of the coming week there should be plenty of snow to report. Lots and lots of it. I'm so excited about what I might be writing about that I just hope that we are not disappointed - but I refuse to believe that we will be... heavy snow is on the way!

For today though it should be a fine day with some decent conditions to be found on the upper areas this morning with the cold start to the day.

Have a good one. Until tomorrow!
