It's a very good morning and I am really pleased to be able to report some good snowfall numbers.

Following on from yesterday, there's more. Here's how much new snowfall the ski resorts themselves are reporting

Hakuba Cortina: 25cm (base), 35cm (top)
Hakuba 47: 30-50cm (on their social media they are talking about up to 60cm)
Hakuba Goryu: 20-30cm
Hakuba Iwatake: 20-30cm

Tsugaike Kogen are adding up to 40cm to their top snow depth number and 50cm has been added to the top official snow depth over at Happo-one.

That should be bringing some smiles to faces this morning, including mine. :)

I have measured 27cm since I measured for the report yesterday morning.

Visibility is limited and there is not much of a wind that I can feel.

Today should be a very good day and there is more regular snowfall forecast for the week.

(If you want to enjoy clearer skies, tomorrow morning is looking like we might see some sunshine).
