We've had a fine day in Hakuba here today, just the type that the resort people refer to as "ultimate" conditions. Generally this means sunny with great views and firm, scrunchy snow on the groomers that holds an edge really well. As a bonus, there was 10cm of fresh overnight, and the temperature has remained low, keeping the snow in good condition.

The wind started to whip up around lunchtime, and by 2pm the lift linking 47 and Goryu closed for the day. In their park, 47 have now got a very big kicker (closed today) and a very large spine down the skiers right side and an assortment of jumps and rails on the other side below the pipe.

The forecast is for a little more snow tonight and then mainly fine conditions for the next few days.
