Light snow falling on and off yesterday on the mountain, with variable visibility as clouds moved in and out of the area and over the slopes. I was at Iwatake yesterday and one minute we had fine views of the valley.. the next it was thick fog and cloud with nothing to be seen apart from the guy 10m in front!

It's a much clearer morning. Resorts not reporting any new cm of snowfall. Lots of blue sky over the village and just a few clouds here and there. But for the most part, bluebird.

A fairly cold start to the day and today and tomorrow shouldn't warm up... too much. From Wednesday though it looks like someone in charge of the heating is going to be turning the dial up to '11', and it might actually get to be that warm by Wednesday afternoon. And warmer still as move into next weekend.

No significant snow on the forecast through into next week I'm afraid (perhaps a sprinkling overnight tonight?) and lots of sunny and clear weather is likely.

It seems odd talking about resorts closing for the season, but the first one to do so will be the small Hakuba Minekata... their last day of the season will be Sunday 10th March. Of course, some of the main resorts in the Hakuba region open through until May and so there's no need to panic! Take a look at archives of the Hakuba Now reports from previous seasons to get an idea of what is open until when.
