Good morning everyone.

I have almost surprised myself being up bright and (fairly) early this morning.

Yesterday it kept fairly chilly for the day; hardly any wind. And I am sure there were a few parties going on last night.

It is a cloudy start to the day here in Hakuba. (Perhaps like some peoples heads!) The clouds are thinner in some places and some areas brighter than others as the sun tries to break through; though it's not expected to make much of an appearance today - or again until the end of the year.

OK, so we want that snow right. It's still there on the forecast, just ahead of us. Look for the main event to start from later on tomorrow.
