Good morning to you all and here are your Sunday morning headlines; fresh snowfall reported by ski resorts:

Hakuba Cortina: 20+cm (base/top)
Hakuba Happo-one: 20cm top of Riesen quad
Hakuba Iwatake: 20cm
Hakuba Goryu: 10-25cm
Hakuba 47: 10cm

Not as much down in the village and honestly I was hoping and expecting more impressive numbers than that. But still, 20cm or so on the slopes is always welcome and conditions should be good this morning as temperatures remain low. And the forecasts still show some pretty regular snowfall over the coming week - in particular later tomorrow and then from Thursday onwards.

At the time of writing the top Grat and Alpen quad lifts at Happo-one are on hold, but as far as I can tell all other resorts are open as normal.

As you can see from the webcam images below, visibility is variable this morning on the mountains. Good in places, poor in others. The sun is shining through clouds outside my place now and there's quite a lot of blue sky over the village. Should be a fine day. Before that snow moves in again later on tomorrow, the day should be starting off with some sun again.

Have a great Sunday.
