Well I'm happy to report that we did get some new snow overnight on the mountains with the most being reported by Hakuba Goryu, Hakuba 47 and Happo-one - all saying 15cm of fresh up top. Other resorts are coming in with numbers up to 10cm, while down here in the village we just got a few cm or so.

It was a round lunchtime yesterday when the snow clouds moved in on the area and snow in the mountains, gradually coming down to village level.

There's lots of cloud hanging around this morning, but blue sky and sun as well. The forecast is for sun and I can believe it, we're on for a clear up I would say this morning. It's going to maybe warm up to a mild +5C today and tomorrow similarly mild. I hate to say it but rain looks likely before snowfall hopefully on Friday.

Back to right now - one of the Happo-one webcams is giving some pretty spectacular images at the moment with the lift rising above a thick bank of cloud but blue skies and the sun shining down on the slopes at the same time.

Amazing scenery.
