Good morning from Hakuba and what a fine morning it really is. That was one good March storm yesterday.

Hakuba Cortina report 40-60cm.

Hakuba 47 were talking about 20cm during the day yesterday and another 0-5cm overnight.

Other resorts seem reluctant to brag about numbers; which to me always seems odd. If I were a skijo, I'd be shouting it out on a morning like this. But, as I am not a skijo and aren't being told those numbers, I just have to imagine it!

Never mind the exact numbers though, there'll be some great conditions to enjoy today pretty much anywhere you decided to slide.

The sun is out as well this morning and it is a cold start, so pretty much as perfect conditions as we can expect for the second half of March.

There's every likelihood that we have just experienced the last blast of winter with sun and a real warming trend ahead of us starting tomorrow. Let's worry about warm conditions later; for now it should be a really great weekend for Hakuba.

Do take care out there - fresh snow on hard ice; an avalanche incident apparently involving a fatality over near Tsugaike Kogen made the national news yesterday.
