Morning from Hakuba and after that rather windy day yesterday with top lifts affected, it is calmer this morning and all resorts seem to be open as planned as I write this report.

It was of course great to get that new snow yesterday, but we want - and need - more (but when do we ever not want more snow?!)

I heard reports of people rushing out to places like Cortina only to be disappointed to find those lifts not moving. I recommend a quick look at their website early on to check on the lifts if at all possible, especially on a morning like yesterday.

Anyway, on to today. It's good and cold. -9C as of 9am. Not a whole lot of snow to report, Cortina again with the most at up to 15cm. 47/Goryu are reporting up to 3-5cm on upper slopes so just a thin new layer.

Earlier on there was some blue sky around and the sun shining down on us but it seems to be starting to cloud over more and some local forecasts do say it might snow this afternoon, but don't expect anything significant.

We are expecting a bit of sun tomorrow but what's most interesting is the snow that is due over the weekend. While it's not going to be quite as cold, it's looking promising snow-wise.

Let's see how it is all looking tomorrow. I will of course report.
