Hello and a good morning to you from Hakuba.

I was up at 47 yesterday afternoon for a few hours. Weather was cloudy, it felt fairly mild at base but a colder wind blowing up there. Some fresh snow is what we want now and this morning there is some.

The headlines...

Hakuba Goryu - 5cm
Hakuba 47 - 10-15cm on upper slopes
Hakuba Cortina - 10cm base, bit more on upper areas
Hakuba Happo-one - 7cm at top of Riesen lift

And I am measuring 5cm.

It is still snowing and hopefully we will get more today - and some fairly regular snowfall through Sunday as well with perhaps a break in the clouds on Saturday. We could do with some of the heavy snow that some forecasts are saying will be with us tomorrow night. That would be most welcome.

There is a bit of a northerly wind this morning and visibility is poor on the mountain in all areas by the looks of the webcams.

Anyway, I will of course be back here for you tomorrow.
