Good morning everyone.

The long weekend is over and today we are back to something like normal. Though of course it is still peak season.

Fresh snowfall headlines as I can find them:

Hakuba Cortina: 10cm (base); 15cm (top)
Hakuba Norikura: 10cm
Hakuba 47: 0cm (but saying that blowing winds stole the measuring point of 5-10cm of fallen snow!)
Hakuba Happo-one: 10cm (top of Riesen)

Some snow falling later in the afternoon yesterday though nothing major and this morning we seem to have around 10cm of fresh on the mountain. Earlier snow has eased away and right now there's actually an increasing amount of blue sky over the village, though still a lot of cloud around the mountains and snow falling along with very limited visibility in places. So a real mix of weather conditions over the region this morning, as you sometimes get of course.

Hopefully we'll be getting some more snowfall tonight.

I know the numbers are far from the whole story and as always I encourage people to not dwell on them. Just to dwell on them for a moment though (doh); I just wish that I could have more days when I was able to report some really big silly mad snow numbers to you. They're always fun and exciting. We're just not seeing many of those days this time... BUT, I have had some excellent days out there and I plan to have many more. And I hope that you can too!
