Good morning from Hakuba.

The fresh snow headlines from the resorts

Hakuba 47: 10-20cm at top of Gondola station
Hakuba Cortina: 10+cm
Hakuba Happo-one: 5cm top Riesen lift

A personal observed 6cm too.

There's some lifts affected by wind this morning - top of Goryu, gondola and top Happo lifts, Tsugaike Ropeway. If you are here and plan to be out this morning I recommend checking directly with the resorts to make sure what is open.

If you can get out though, there should be some nice conditions to find this morning. And there's an increasing amount of blue sky starting to show from behind the clouds too.

Today is the last day for Sanosaka.
