It is a cloudy morning here in Hakuba - all very silvery grey looking and not much contrast going on. No new snow either since yesterday - a day which ended up a bit like what we have this morning... clouded over.

A chilly start to the day anyway after temperatures dipping to around -4 in the village overnight, currently around -1C.

But the snow should be back by the end of today and fingers crossed we'll be getting snow each day through the weekend as well.

I will of course let you know the latest tomorrow morning.
