Good morning from Hakuba.

Some more snow to report to you this morning though differing numbers, the northern Cortina reporting 20cm with Goryu and Happo reporting 3-5cm and 47 reporting 5-10cm. Sounds like the northern areas got a bit more of it this morning.

Hakuba Cortina: 20cm
Hakuba 47: 5-10cm
Hakuba Goryu: 3-5cm
Hakuba Happo-one: 3cm (top of Riesen)

It is good and cold this morning so conditions should be good out there. There's some breaks in the cloud too so visibility is good and there's some dramatic views.

OK so looking towards the weekend.

Some sun tomorrow perhaps and then there's that worryingly warm (and hopefully short) blip that is due on Sunday/Monday. Which might bring some rubbish rain but end up bringing smiles to our faces with snow on Monday. It's going to be interesting to see what happens with that lot. Fingers crossed.
