Good morning from Hakuba everyone.

Snow started falling in the afternoon yesterday and this morning I am measuring 9cm of fresh snowfall.

Once again in my reports this season, I will be telling you how much that I measure near (Happo-one) base, backed up with other numbers and observations I hear from colleagues. I will also report to you the snowfall numbers that the ski resorts themselves report. I'll make the numbers as clear as I possibly can. Do keep in mind of course that there will be more or less snow in every area. If you are by Hakuba Goryu base, you might well experience different numbers than I measure here at Happo-one; and different still if you are up at Hakuba Cortina. What I can promise you is consistency in what I am reporting.

And of course, I have no control over what the resorts report! And when they report it. (Etc!)

Anyway, enough of the disclaimers! Here's the fresh snowfall reported by the resorts this morning:

- Hakuba 47: 15cm

No other numbers I can find just at the moment but it looks like there should be a nice new layer of snow to play in on upper slopes.

The currently cloudy skies are due to clear as the day goes on, and tomorrow we are expecting sunshine from early on. It should be a very fine day.

And we can look forward to potentially decent snowfall in the first part of the coming week.
