New snow to report from Hakuba this morning. Yesterday by afternoon it was snowing and visibility up at Hakuba 47 where I boarding was pretty poor at times. Some nice big flakes coming down.

This morning resorts around the village here are bringing in new snowfall numbers of just a few cm down at base and up to 20cm of fresh snow on the upper slopes.

It's one of those mornings where there has been more snowfall to the north in Otari, and Hakuba Cortina this morning at reporting 25cm on the lower areas and up to 40cm up top. If you want the most fresh snow this morning, the Otari resorts would seem to be the place to be. Just be careful as all that new snow once again will increase the chance of avalanche or mishaps in the back and side country.

Right now it is around -5C at Happo base and closer to -10C on the upper slopes, so nice and cold. Just a slight wind.

This morning starts off generally just cloudy again with the chance of light snowfall through the day. There may be clearings though and a chance of seeing some sun. I can actually see some shadows being cast through the clouds now even over parts of the village.

Tomorrow though, back to snow, perhaps with a vengence. Some of the forecasts tell us to expect heavy snowfall going into the weekend. Will give you an update on that tomorrow morning.
