Hello, and it's another snowy morning in Hakuba.

Going back to yesterday, in the afternoon we enjoyed a sometimes dramatic mix of cloud, blue skies and sunshine - beautiful views for some folk, all depending on where you were at the time! I was over at Hakuba Iwatake and the low cloud with blue skies above it made for some stunning scenery mid-afternoon.

Anyway, on to today and here's the headlines from around the resorts. This is how much fresh snowfall they are reporting this morning:

Hakuba 47: 20cm
Hakuba Happo-one: 15cm
Hakuba Goryu: 10cm
Hakuba Cortina: 10cm

I am measuring 18cm since my report yesterday morning up until the time I am posting this.

So a decent new layer out there, snow falling now and also forecast for the day today and tomorrow. Perhaps heavy snowfall tonight. Sounds good, right?

If you like sunshine, looks like there might be a few days to enjoy that this coming week. Fingers crossed temperatures remain low.

Anyway should be a good weekend. Get wrapped up well and I might meet a few of you out there on the lifts.

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.
