After postponement due to heavy snow on Thursday night, the World Cup Large Hill ski jumping event took place in, err, heavy snow last night. Congratulations to Finland's Matti Hautamaeki who did best in the poor conditions to chalk up another victory this season. The best Japanese showing was from Itoh-kun, a third-year high school student. He came ninth.

It stopped coming down at village level earlier this morning, making a total of around 80cm so far, but it looks like we're off again now as I write. It doesn't come down by halves in Hakuba! The reports are slow coming in today, but the man with the big stick at Goryu says they got an extra 65cm overnight (since yesterdays measurement surely?), taking them up to a mighty 315cm. The snow at village level has been good-quality pow, so it will be stellar higher up.

A sunny day is forecast for tomorrow, with more snow to follow during the week.
