After that new snow to report yesterday and some nice conditions out there, this morning I have no new snow to report and warm conditions. And some rain. Sorry.

Overcase skies and warmer conditions in Hakuba with temperatures ranging between +1 and +3C at village level. Rain is falling, even higher up on the mountains, but the good news is that by the end of today it should be snowing and after that we'll be back to snowy conditions and snow due to fall right through the week.

So fingers crossed it will be a snowy and powdery New Year.

Nighta started last nighta at Happo-one on the Nakiyama slopes, with the Nakiyama Number 2 pair lift open until 9pm and running through into March. Until exactly when will depend on the snow conditions. In other nighta from around Hakuba and Otari, Hakuba Goryu will be operating until 9:30pm daily until snow permits; nighta at Cortina is until 9pm and running daily through 23rd March; and at Tsugaike Kogen they are open over this New Year period and then mostly on Saturday nights.

Expect a number of New Year events on the slopes around the valley tomorrow night in particular. Maybe even some parties in the popular bars and restaurants around the village...
