It was cold through the day yesterday with the sun making some extended appearances, and while there was no new cm of snowfall it has kept good conditions due to the continued cold temps.

This morning there has been a light snowfall in places with Hakuba 47 reporting 2-5cm and Cortina up to 5cm.

Visibility is ok on the lower slopes but it looks like most of the runs this morning to start off with at least covered in cloud/fog with poor visibility. While it isn't snowing here in the village right now, I heard that snow is coming down on the roads around Tsugaike and some of the resorts are early on reporting snowy conditions up there. Most forecasts have us just down for cloud for the day though perhaps the odd snow shower in the first part of the day.

From tomorrow it's looking like a run of clear and sunny days. Hopefully it'll keep cold over the weekend but there's a good chance that warmer conditions will prevail early in the week and temperatures nudging into positive numbers down at base.

Should be a good weekend. After the traffic chaos last weekend, all being clear I would expect some people wanting to make up for it this coming weekend... expect popular places to be very busy! Early start recommended.
