I said today would be a late report, but let's go with an early one. Today is easy to report on after all - lovely blue skies up there early on, it's going to be a cracker of a day.

Yesterday the snow clouds eased off fairly quickly and at times we even saw patches of blue sky above Hakuba but generally a lot of cloud remained in the region for the day. It got really cold overnight in Hakuba, down to about -6 degrees, but it is set to warm up pretty quickly with some forecasts saying a high of around +8 degrees. Right now it's around -1C. There's not much of a wind, so all is calm.

The next few days will be getting really warm, especially around Tuesday when it might get up to around 16C.

Not much else to report really other than it is going to be another amazing morning here, still untouched to be found and incredible views to be had too. Couldn't ask for much more! I'm going to go and get out there and make the most of it, hope you can too.
