It is a beautiful morning here in Hakuba - bright and clear with thin layers of cloud, but the blue sky is dominating proceedings today. Today is a blue bird day!

It is also a cold start to the day, early on about -4C degrees and in the afternoon it should be the warmest at around 2C degrees. There is no wind around either, so it should be a pleasant day out.

You want to know about snow? We had some decent snow coming down yesterday and while Goryu are officially reporting 5cm on their website, more like 15cm higher up. Goryu have 45cm as their snow depth (that almost seems too low to me), with Happo reporting 60cm. With the top-up yesteday though conditions should be certainly improved this morning for those lucky enough to be able to get out there. It does not look like any more runs or lifts are opening up though just quite yet.

The forecast is still telling us to expect warmer conditions tomorrow along with more sun. Things start to look interesting from early Tuesday onwards though with snow lined up into next weekend and a real drop in temperatures once again.

Resorts currently part open & operating lifts:

Happo-one:
Gondola
Alpen quad
Kurobishi No2 quad
Kokusai No3 pair
Panorama pair

Hakuba Goryu:
Gondola
No1 pair lift

Tsugaike Kogen:
