Apologies for my later report this morning. A few friends from my home country are here in Hakuba and they took me out for what ended up being a rather long evening. It was a good night. I think. But I am feeling rather.. delicate.. this morning and I am having to take things rather slowly. Enough of my excuses and babbling on, please don't ask for refunds. ;)

Yesterday by late morning more and more blue sky has started to appear between the clouds but it was getting cloudy again later in the afternoon.

Some good snow coming down last night and this morning Cortina, 47 and Goryu are all reporting 10-15cm of fresh snowfall. Iwatake is reporting 20cm. I was expecting (or was that just hoping for) more, but we are still looking at that potential heavy snowfall later on so I hope tomorrow I will be clearer of head and need to be out with a shovel early on.

Anyway, there is fresh snow out there this morning.

Looks like rather limited visibility out on the mountain this morning.

I notice Hakuba Iwatake is also saying 'all courses open' this morning, happy to report.
