A good cold overnight here in Hakuba and a nice cold morning as well.

Resorts reporting up to 10cm of fresh snow on upper slopes after some good snowy conditions on the slopes yesterday.

This morning it's more of a bright, hazy and sunny start to the day in Hakuba and while it's a cold start it will be warming up somewhat during the day. Hopefully it'll be snowing by the end of the day though, but we might get a bit of drizzle before that. Perhaps a similar kind of story for tomorrow as well though as the weather people on the news said last night 'it's hard to read'. Tell me about it!

I'm looking forward to the decent snowfall that's forecast for Monday, let's see if that happens.

Looks like Hakuba Goryu have some kind of issue with their Gondola this morning meaning it's not running this morning.

Anyway, have a great weekend wherever you are.
