More snow to report this Sunday morning in Hakuba. Perhaps around 5cm or so in the village, and resorts around the valley reprting 10-20cm on the mountain (as noted in the lists below - keep an eye on those as we will update them every day).

Yesterday was mostly cloudy with snow falling at times and visibility decreasing in the afternoon and heavier snow - that's what happened over at Iwatake anyway, which is where I was. A quick look at the webcams from around the skijo and it looks like a similar story at other places too.

This morning is a different story with beautiful clear blue skies above Hakuba. There's still a layer of cloud hiding the mountain peaks this morning but they'll staying about the resort areas. It's a cold start to the day with temperatures at 9am keeping at around the overnight point of -5C.

Fresh snow overnight, just a slight breeze and fine clear conditions this morning. It should be a very fine day.

New Year holidays means lots of people on the slopes and lively nightlife.
