Hi there

Oops. It seems I left you mid-sentence in my report yesterday morning. I'm not sure what was going on there - and I can't remember what the last part of my sentence was going to be! OK, on to this morning.

Clearer conditions this morning after some generally limited visibility during the day yesterday on the slopes. There is lots of cloud still but some blue sky and perhaps more sunshine as the day goes on.

Oh yes, and a little fresh snow too.

Hakuba Happo-one: 2cm (top of Riesen quad)
Hakuba Cortina: 1cm

There has been a bit of a dusting and frosting down to base areas overnight and I feel justified in awarding the reports 1cm this morning. And compared with the last week it is back to being cold with temperatures below zero early morning.

Tomorrow is the last day of the season for the Sanosaka ski resort.
