It ended up being great weather yesterday in Hakuba with sunshine pretty much all of the day and some nice stashes still to be found, though some runs were getting pretty iced out by late afternoon.

Goryu is reporting 10 cms of fresh snow this morning but it seemed more than that in the village around 20cm. Our man on the ground reckons no snow as at 3:00 AM yesterday morning so it was a late starter but light and fluffy meaning early morning runs were a treat in the right spots.

Snow continues to fall lightly outside at the moment and visibility is not the best at altitude but the resorts are in great condition and the slow continued snowfall will continue to fill in the gaps.

Still pretty bushy in general - the more snow we get the better... not that that is ever not true, of course!

The forecast is for snow to continue through today - sometimes heavily - with it stopping/clearing tomorrow and more decent snowfall possible again from the weekend.
