Morning from Hakuba and after a day of snow yesterday it continues to snow this morning. Yey!

Headlines from the ski resorts - this is how much snow they are reporting.

Hakuba 47: 20-30cm overnight (10cm in the day yesterday)
Hakuba Goryu: 5-20cm
Hakuba Happo-one: 20cm
Hakuba Cortina: 15-20cm

And I am reporting 14cm.

A bit heavy (snow condition) yesterday - at least where I was (47), but looks the drier variety this morning. So snow conditions should be good.

Strong winds are affecting higher areas of resorts at the start of this morning (Goryu, 47, Happo and Tsugaike currently affected by the looks) and we'll need to keep an eye on that situation. Hopefully they'll be able to get moving.

We might get some sunshine tomorrow before a return to snow Thursday onwards. As the forecast is right now, snow is expected over the weekend so plan for that.

LATE SEASON REPORTING
The individual Now reports will continue in each area until the season in that place closes - some will continue daily, some will become less than daily once we get into April.

Once the season has finished everywhere, we will be adding a general season wrap up to each of the reports, where we will also answer questions and comments that we regularly get sent. Some do keep on coming back! The end of season message will be up at the end of Golden Week in early May.

Thank you for reading.
