Good morning from Hakuba.

I hate to have to report it but... it's raining. Started last night. Even though we were expecting it, it's still disappointing and annoying to see it.

But let's be positive. It is supposed to get colder today and we might get snowed on with precipitation due to end by this evening. And then some sunshine tomorrow after a forecast pretty cold night.

Our next portion of fresh snow looks due to be delivered around Thursday.

Looks like part of Cortina is closed this morning, not sure why - perhaps just checking conditions.
