After what appeared to be a clear day yesterday, we had a sunny start this morning. The sky has since whitened with high cloud and we may see a little snow later on. The tops of the mountains are visible from down below.

As ever, the official reports focus on how wonderful the groomers are after the cats have done their thing on this week's powder feast. Goryu's report has been showing a closeup shot of some corduroy (!) Kurobishi got a rare grooming (they must use winches) on Thursday night, but looks to be mogulled already. The temps have remained low this week, so there should be lots of high-quality pow in shaded offpiste areas. It might be a little crunchy on top elsewhere.

The locals' annual Kigansai event with the African drumming takes place tonight at a gateball court (?!) opposite Green Sports Hakuba. It should be a good party.
