Snow falling and generally poor visibility out on the mountains yesterday, though not a huge amount in terms of cm.

Heavy snow falling at the moment in Hakuba - it's really coming down with purpose! That's what we like to see. :)

Just a few cm on the ground in the village overnight but if it carries on falling like this it will soon be piling up. Resorts around the valley generally reporting around 5cm of snow, bit more bit less depending - check the numbers that are available below.

It's not actually that cold this morning with the thermometer outside telling me that it's currently +1C. Not much of a wind either. Just snow coming down.

Poor visibility out on the slopes with all this snow falling this morning and foggy conditions. Expecting slightly milder conditions tomorrow with clearer skies during the day, with a return to snow in the evening. Going to get quite a bit colder as well as we go into 2015 and the year should start off with a heavy snow in the region.

A number of 'Countdown' events planned for tomorrow night, as well as some healthy nightlife activities around the village I'm sure! Hopefully the weather won't prevent the fireworks from going up.
