First of all, I'm glad to be able to report that this morning is much calmer.

Strong winds yesterday making for limited action and not the best of conditions. Happo was able to open up more lifts after my report. At 3pm, Hakuba 47 was reporting wind speeds of 13m/s and 0cm of new snow. It was definitely snowing down to village level for most of the day, but the wind was blowing it around and so some perhaps odd looking numbers this morning. This all made for poor visibility as well out there.

On to this morning. It's got quite cold overnight dipping down to -5, and at the moment it's around -1C at base. Usagidaira at 1400m is currently around -8C. As I said it's much calmer this morning and while there's still a lot of cloud around the mountains, there's also some blue sky as well. Local forecast says it may well clear up.

Tomorrow we might be on for a bluebird day and there should be a lot of sun over the next week or so as spring-like conditions are set to return. Expext temps to rise and it get warm towards the end of the week.

For now though it's a busy Sunday. Have fun.
