It's a beautiful morning in Hakuba.

Not only do we have a nice fresh layer of snow on the ground (10cm or so), but it's beautiful blue skies with just a few clouds hanging around. Stunning views of the mountains this morning and all is calm.

Hakuba 47 reporting 30cm of new snow up top with 10cm at base. Cold -4 as if 7am.

At the time of writing it is 2C here near Happo base and with the sun out a high of about 7C is likely later on in the day.

The forecast is... well, a bit dry looking actually with more of a chance of rain in the village than snow. But we can hope that if and when that happens, it will be snow on the upper slopes.

In terms of resort openings and skiable terrain, we're mostly unchanged this morning. At Happo, they have the Alpen quad lift moving today, in place of the previously operating Usagidaira pair lift. The Kokusai Number 1 pair is also moving but like the Gondola just to get people up to the snow and back.

Tsugaike Kogen now also has the Tsuga Number 2 lift operating this weekend.
