Good morning from Hakuba.

Well, I wasn't out on the mountain yesterday but it was windy and the wind was affecting various lifts.

This morning the only fresh snow being reported by resorts is 3cm by Cortina.

Seems less windy today but as of 9am the top lifts at Happo-one appear to be on hold; other resorts opening as normal. It should be a fine morning.

Forecast: Looking good! Might be rather mild today and tomorrow during the daytime - rising to low positive numbers at base - but snow due from later on tomorrow.

Come on bring it to us, this way please.

-----

Feeling much more like normal this morning - at last! Should be back out on the mountain tomorrow.

Nozawa Now reporter --- sorry! :(

Photos today from Happo-one (the first two) and Hakuba Iwatake.
