It is a colder start to the day today with the temperature in village going down to around +2 degrees overnight. 1.5C at the moment and a high of around only eight degrees today, so not as warm as it has been.

And get this... it is actually trying to snow at the moment. Quite successfully too in places even at base and up on the mountains - I can see close to white-out conditions high up on Happo and the snow definitely falling on Hakuba Goryu and Hakuba 47. It's not sticking really at the moment but of course it is always welcome to see snow falling. It almost feels like back at the beginning of the season somehow.

Anyway it's due to clear up today so probably won't last long. We might even get some sun but it should keep quite cool today.
