Good morning from Hakuba.

It was really cold overnight (down to minus double digits apparently) and the day is starting off cold, but things are set to get mild during the day today, perhaps warming up to around 5 or 6C. Let's keep on the low side of that please.

Hakuba 47 resort opens from this morning.

I have to rush off to Nagano city this morning I'm afraid. As far as I can tell, other than 47 opening, we are similar to how we were in my report yesterday.

I'll be doing a thorough check later today in time for a more detailed report tomorrow.

BTW, looking good for decent snowfall around Tuesday/Wednesday; perhaps a bit overnight tonight.
