OK so the snow did ease off yesterday as expected. The clouds started to disperse mid morning, things calmed down and by lunchtime we had nice blue skies over Hakuba.

It was clearly quieter than you would expect for a normal Sunday in mid February. The heavy snow in lots of low-lying areas that aren't used to it really did knock out lots of (almost all!) transportation options and there have been some amazing stories of people stranded and also very sad ones of even some weather related deaths. Sometimes it's difficult snow country people who are used to the snow to grasp just how disruptive the snow can be.

Back to today and clouds haved moved back in over Hakuba and light snow has started to fall. Oh yes just a few cm of snow to add to the haul we had yesterday. It is a bit warmer this morning and as we approach 9am it is just hovering under 0 degrees.

Avalance risk and dangers remain high. Powder remains on the slopes - enjoy them!

A calmer and drier patch seems likely though - perhaps snow showers on and off today and then the chance of clearer skies tomorrow.
