Morning from Hakuba.

This morning the fresh snow news is less in the north with Cortina just reporting 1cm and Happo, 47 and Goryu all reporting between 5-10cm of fresh snow on the mountain. Not huge numbers of course but better than none as the weekend begins and the car parks quickly fill up.

We're expecting clearing clouds today and fairly mild conditions. There is still a lot of cloud around the mountains but it's clearer in some places.

Probably a beautiful clear morning tomorrow. It's still looking likely to be unseasonably warm (around 7C in village) with rain later in the day into Monday. Colder and back to snow please. (Please repeat many times).

In the meantime should be a good morning. Looking busy out there.

Take care and have fun.
