Good morning from Hakuba.

After that fresh snow reported yesterday - this morning it's another cracker weather-wise with blue skies and sunshine.

I checked our Hakuba 47 yesterday. Really great conditions. Didn't feel like early December, for sure. That lovely fresh snow made for a fine morning.

There is no fresh cm of snowfall to report this morning; just those lovely sunny skies, and with cold conditions the snow conditions should be really good this morning as well.

The forecast remains very positive for snow tomorrow and then at the end of the weekend into early week.

I would expect more lifts and courses to be open at the weekend - if not then, with the decent snowfall that is due next week.

Looking back to yesterday morning, I notice that the Hakuba Cortina resort were saying they had 35cm of fresh snowfall by base. Very nice.

They plan to open on 16th December.
