It is a cold and snowy start to the day in Hakuba. And it was a snowy day yesterday as well only clearing up a bit early evening.

Lots of nice 'new snowfall since last night numbers' to report this morning from around the resorts:

Hakuba Goryu - 20cm on Iimori and Toomi, 30cm up top
Hakuba 47 - 10-15cm on lower slopes, 20-25cm on upper slopes
Happo-one - Usagidaira reporting 20cm of new
Hakuba Cortina - 20cm on lower slopes, 30cm on upper slopes

Add what fell during the daytime yesterday and there's a nice new layer out there. Nice fresh powdery snow. It is about -4 degrees in the village area at the moment. As of 9:20am, Usagidaira at 1400m on Happo is recording a temperature of around -8.

Rather limited visibilty out there I would say again, though this morning it seems that a few of the normally reliable webcams have conked out. Not much wind this morning though the forecast does tell us to expect stronger winds later on in the day.

As expected yesterday was generally very busy on the slopes around the village. This weekend has definitely been one of it if not the busiest two days of the season, I would say. Of course, some resorts more than others and the numbers were much more manageable at some of the 'smaller' (for want of a better word) resorts.

Today is the last day of the long weekend and so there will be more people out than usual for a Monday. Usually on days like this the afternoon gets more like normal as visitors make their way back home in the after lunch. And tomorrow we will be back to normal once again.
