Good morning from Hakuba.

Snow of the heavier variety falling this morning in the village.

Yesterday it did continue clouding over, but the sun was still out in places by mid to late afternoon. It was snowing later on and through the night though and this morning the mountains are reporting varying amounts of new snowfall.

10cm at Goryu, 15cm at Hakuba 47 and a perhaps unexpected (but then again it's Cortina) 20-25cm at Hakuba Cortina to the north. Perhaps up to 10cm or so at base levels and areas around the village.

As I said it's a heavier kind of snow rather than light and fluffy but it sure is better than anything beginning with the letter 'r' and so it's good with me. Hopefully it can stay this way though temperatures are forecast to rise to around 4C later on in the day today here in village so we'll just have to keep our fingers crossed. We might not be able to avoid it. Right now it is around +1C. Surely it will be snowing higher up though, so that's the place to be. (Isn't it always?!)

Clearer conditions are still forecast for tomorrow and Thursday and it's going to keep mild until perhaps Thursday night. From then into Friday we should see a drop and a good chance of decent snowfall which will probably go through into the weekend.
