Morning from Hakuba.

Take a look at the images below. It is one of those truly beautiful mornings.

Great, love that. But I think we'd all prefer a few snowstorms right now. We are going to have to wait at least until overnight into Thursday for the next snowfall and before then we have a few days of this sunshine and warmer conditions, particularly tomorrow and Wednesday.

For now though, Hakuba isn't peak season busy yet of course so there is plenty to enjoy up high for those here. As far as I can tell operations at the open ski resorts remain unchanged.
