Good morning from Hakuba.

Things generally cleared up quite a bit during the day yesterday with some blue skies and sunshine appearing in the afternoon...

This morning it's a mix of cloud and blue sky early on. The only ski resort reporting any snowfall is Cortina with 1cm.

It should be a good day.

Check out the Hakuba Now report from this time last year... you can clearly see that there's no snow left at village level, clearly showing how this season has turned out much better than last season. Actually I highly recommend you read through some of the reports from last year to get some perspective. It makes for interesting reading.
