Loads of snow. Oh yes.

It's a very good morning from here in Hakuba, with a good 35-40cm or so piled up outside my place this morning.

Resorts around the valley are reporting nice deep fresh layers of snow as well. I've added the numbers where available by the notes for each resort below. Special mention to that 60cm recorded by Hakuba Cortina. No doubt there's more than a few exicted folk experiencing that powder right now as I sit here typing this. I'd prefer to be sat here, of course! ;)

Happo-one clocking in 50cm at Usagidaira.
Kashiyamari reporting 50cm.
40cm at Goryu.

They're all good numbers this morning. Must admit, I wasn't expecting them but I'm certainly not complaining as we should be back to full on conditions this morning. Poor visibility in places as well.

Unfortunately stronger winds on mountain are affecting some lifts and I've also added that to the notes below. It goes without saying, that situation may (hopefully) change of course during the day.

Today is the last day of this long 3 day weekend in Japan course, with things settling back to normal once again from tomorrow.

There's a good chance of sunshine as well tomorrow with the clearer weather and milder temperatures forecast to continue through until the end of the week.
