It's windy out on them there mountains this morning! And cold too, down to a chilly -7 even in the village. Expect temperatures down into the minus double digits on the mountain.

This morning new snow to report from around the valley. Just a bit down in the village with up to 15cm at Hakuba Goryu and up to 10cm at Hakuba 47. Another 30-40cm is being reported by Hakuba Cortina this morning meaning that once again the Deep Award goes over to that resort in Otari. Oh, but shhh.... don't tell anyone! as some would say... ;)

Upper lifts at Happo-one closed this morning due to the wind conditions. The Gondola and Line C at Hakuba 47 aren't moving yet and the top lifts at Goryu are prone to be affected.

Changeable weather conditions this morning. Cloudy for the most part but breaks in the cloud and even some blue sky on show from time to time. Light snow is forecast for the day.

Sunny conditions likely tomorrow and clearer conditions forecast into next week.

It's going to be a busy weekend I reckon - early start recommended!
