Good morning from Hakuba.

There's a little fresh snow to report to you this morning from the mountains:

Hakuba Cortina: 1cm
Hakuba Happo-one: 2cm (top of Riesen quad)
Hakuba 47: 2-3cm

None down to village of course but good to see some snow still and there remains snow on the forecast.

Overnight tonight looks very interesting. Is that... potentially heavy snow?! Wonder how that will turn out.

Gondola and a few top lifts at Tsugaike appear to be on hold this morning but lifts at other resorts moving as normal.
