Good morning from Hakuba.

Just a bit of fresh snow to report from Hakuba Cortina (base and top) and Hakuba Happo-one (top of Riesen lift), both reporting 3cm of snowfall in those places. Other resorts don't seem to be mentioning any fresh.

There is a lot of cloud around this morning with some blue sky added into the mix in places. It is noticeably colder this morning but I don't have any fresh snow to report on the ground.

Clearer weather and sun is forecast for tomorrow and it's going to be mild.

Please don't shout at the messenger! ;)
