Morning from Hakuba. A bit of frost early on this morning with temperature here in the village at around +2 as of 9am.

No new snow fall to report for you... yet.

Today is a national holiday in Japan and so expect the limited number of courses that are open to be busy.

You might even see Santa out there as well there are rumours he is here in Hakuba. Hopefully once he has finished skiing or snowboarding (is he a skier or a snowboarder?!), he will get cracking on preparing to deliver lots of snow to us all soon.

The weather forecast is still looking good from Friday onwards with snow expected over the weekend along with a real drop in temperatures. This could be it folks.

Have fun and take care out there. (You should be able to bring out the brand new gear soon!)
