Fresh snow! Yes, a few cm of fresh snowfall here in Hakuba this morning and resorts around the valley reporting up to 10cm of new snow on upper slopes (see below). Hurray!

All a big chance from yesterday when we saw the mercury rise again and it got up to around 17 degrees as well. Very warm. March temperature records are being broken in many areas of Japan it seems this year.

So it's sweet to have them drop right back down again. Overnight it got as cold as -3 at village level and right now at 9am it is -2C here and around -7C up on the Usagidaira (1400m) area of Happo-one.

The snow is very likely going to ease off this morning completely and leave us with a fine and perhaps sunny day. Actually even now I can see more and more blue sky behind the departing clouds. Feels like it is going to clear up. It won't be getting as warm as it has been though and keep fairly cold (hopefully).

Fairly strong winds this morning as well on mountain but resorts seems relatively unaffected.

After this quick return to wintery conditions, tomorrow will probably be clear and sunny - and start warming up again.

It seems that the Japan Paralympics starting today until Sunday 24th March at Kokusai 3 and Kokusai 1 lifts. Gambatte! In other Happo news, last night was the last night of 'nighta' on the Nakiyama slopes.
