Yesterday turned into a real beauty.

By mid morning the remaining clouds over the mountains had all but disappeared leaving us with fantastic scenery, fine blue skies and lots of sunshine.

A really beautiful early evening as well.

Stunning.

Not much can be seen this morning though, as the snow is back and it's coming down pretty good up on the mountains looking at the webcams just now. Limited visibility.

Only up to a few cm or so at most to report from around the ski-jo so far, but it should be snowing for the day and so I expect to bring news of fresh cm tomorrow morning.

Feels like a moderate north easterly wind, but all resorts appear to be planning on opening as normal. Hopefully that will be the case.

Back to clearer skies tomorrow and Wednesday maybe before a return to snowfall on Thursday.

Someone has asked why the Adventure Course at Hakuba Goryu seems to never open. Just spoken with someone over at the resort about that to get an official word - it might open but they don't feel it's the conditions to open it right now... safety concerns by the sounds of things.
