Good morning all.

After all those snowy and windy conditions, things seem a bit calmer this morning...

Though having just said that, winds appear to be affecting the top lifts at Hakuba Goryu, Happo-one and a few lifts at Tsugaike too. Hopefully they will get going... there's plenty of people around wanting to enjoy the fresh snow and clearer skies this morning!

I can see some blue sky this morning and some sunshine.

The only fresh snow being reported by resorts (that I can find) is 10cm on mountain during the day at 47 and 7-10cm by Hakuba Cortina.

The forecast doesn't say it is to last though with some more snow due tonight though perhaps not much and decent weather again tomorrow. Into next week and I can see we're due lots more snow which sounds like a very good way to start the year.
