It was snowing nicely yesterday morning and we got some more cm on the ground... by lunchtime Hakuba Cortina was reporting 5cm of additional snow and up to that around Hakuba I would say too.

The snow turned into rain late afternoon, in the village base areas anyway. Unfortunately that means that some of that lovely snow has turned into heavier and wetter stuff this morning. Doh!

Anyway up to 5cm or so in the village area since my report yesterday. Hakuba 47 are reporting 3cm up top and 1-2cm lower slopes this morning and similar news coming from Hakuba Goryu. Hakuba Cortina, always one to give us the biggest numbers, are reporting 10-20cm of new snow in addition to that 5cm at lunchtime yesterday.

This morning we have overcast skies with fairly poor visibility - only the lower parts of the mountain on show from village at the moment. There's just a slight breeze and light snow showers.

Overcast skies, slight breeze, and vision quite poor today. Light snow showers.

So, for now some suddenly wet and heavier conditions out on the slopes, I would imagine better conditions found as you go higher of course. Snow is forecast to be falling on and off through into the weekend and it should keep cold so hopefully over the next few days we will get some decent topups.

I'll update you tomorrow!
