Good morning from Hakuba.

There was quite a lot of cloud around during the morning yesterday but by mid afternoon there was less cloud and more blue sky with the sun shining through in places. Dramatic!

Less cloud and more blue sky and sun over Hakuba this morning.

It seems most of northern Nagano is going to be enjoying lots of sunshine through today and tomorrow. Cold nights but warming up somewhat during the daytime in the village.

With good snow cover on the mountain and a lot of terrain open, definitely very nice days to be out there.

But, of course, inevitably, we want more snow. It's there on the forecast still from Sunday night into the new week. It is looking like it will should be a snowy Christmas day.
