Morning from Hakuba.

No new snow on the ground in the village but some resorts reporting some fresh, as I have noted below. We could really do with a more significant all-mountain refresh though now, with the snow conditions on the heavier side brought on by the generally mild conditions at the moment.

It's another mild start to the day here and as I write this currently just cloudy with some foggy conditions in places on the mountains.

Happily, a return to colder conditions should be happening later on today and it should also be snowing by the end of the day. There's a good chance of significant snowfall going into the weekend as well, so that refresh is hopefully imminent.

In the meantime, look on current snow conditions as a challenge and a good work out with the softer fluffy variety coming soon!
