Morning from Hakuba.

It has been snowing, but I don't have any decent numbers to bring you yet or news of ski resort openings. There is still not much out there and lower slopes around town have either a thin dusting or remain clear of snow right now.

What we need - obviously - is some serious snowfall to get a decent base going; we're not there yet.

Perhaps some today. The best potential for a decent delivery of snow seems to be later Tuesday into Wednesday.

I so wish I could bring more snowy news to you but we just need to remain patient.

I know, it's really difficult!
