Anyone out there enjoy yesterday? Poor visibility but with snow continuing to come down there were some very very fine snow conditions out there. Oh yes.

It was Australia Day yesterday and as there are one or two friends from Australia in Hakuba at the moment there were a few lively gatherings last night. Maybe a few sore heads this morning, as well as sore limbs from efforts on the slopes during the daytime!

Visibility is better this morning as things have calmed down somewhat and it was clearer but clouds have been gradually moving in covering parts of the mountains as well. Right now it looks like variable visibility depending on where you are and generally less as you get higher up.

Here's what the resorts are reporting in terms of snowfall since yesterday:

Hakuba Goryu - 15-30cm
Hakuba 47 - 20cm
Hakuba Cortina - 35-45cm

15+cm here in village.

The snow has eased off this morning. It is a cold -6C with a brisk wind here in the village area but it looks like resorts are open as normal this morning.

Up at Usagidaira on Happo it is -9C, average northerly wind speed of 3.6m/s and a maximum of 6.4m/s.

We may see scattered snow showers but the local forecast for the day is generally just cloudy and similar for tomorrow. After that, a run of a few days of clearer weather is likely.

Should be another great day out on the slopes today. Hope you can get to enjoy these powder conditions.
