Limited visibility in many areas yesterday, with snow falling higher up and giri-giri rain at times lower down at base. Hakuba 47 reported 5cm during the day. Not the lightest, but it's certainly better than the see-through stuff!

This morning we have more snow to report and a decent amount as well higher up - up to 20cm in places being reported. Less than 5cm here in the village.

Down here in or should I say above the village we can see increasingly clear and blue skies opening up, though there's still a lot of cloud hanging around the mountains and poor visibility in places. The remaining snowfall is due to stop and if the skies here are anything to go by and those cloude clear we might be left with a day of fine weather.

Strong winds are messing with lifts though this morning with widespread disruption at the start of the day. Details I can find added below. Hopefully that situation will improve as the weather clears.

Weekly forecast is currently a mix of mild-ish conditions, clearer weather and snow showers.
