Lovely day yesteday (well, for those that like the views!), that early morning cloud gradually disappeared and by noon it was mostly clear. Blue skies and sunny.

It's a much greyer start to the day and very cloudy. Temperature dipped to around -7 degrees overnight, and as we approach 9am it's around -2C. Going to warm up though and a high of +5C is forecast for later on. Hate to have to mention it, but rain is likely as well later but it should be snow on upper elevations and hopefully as far down towards the village as possible. Tomorrow is forecast to keep around zero and be dry, perhaps a bit of sun on Saturday and then more rain on Sunday I'm afraid as we warm up again.

Every season has one or two warm spells with rain 'events', looks like we're on that bumpy path at the moment. Snow conditions are as you might expect them to be after this mostly dry spell we have been having. Best higher up.

Of course we want to get right back to cold and consistently snowy as quickly as possible. Early next week? I'll keep you posted each day.

It's the Chinese New Year this weekend and lots of visitors coming to celebrate in Hakuba this year over the coming week or so. Would be nice to show them a good old traditional Hakuba snowfest!
