The weather today here in Hakuba is cloudy with patches of blue sky, rising to around 6 degree Celsius.

There is a cool breeze around Hakuba and it is quite pleasant to walk around - local restaurants and bars are gradually opening up for trade as the ski resorts opened earlier than planned. It's still generally quiet though as perhaps you might expect.

The snow around village area now gone we look towards the next snowfall. It looks like we might get some rain in the village later on today but fingers crossed that will be snow showers by late in the evening. Overnight and into tomorrow is looking positive for a decent snowfall on the mountains and tomorrow should be cold and snowy.

Clearer conditions are set to return on Sunday, but hopefully by then we will have had a nice topup of snow and perhaps the resorts might be able to start opening up more terrain. We'll just have to wait and see.

OK, time for a round-up of where we stand with the resorts at the moment.

Hakuba Goryu remains open with the Gondola and the top No1 pair lift operating.

Hakuba 47 has announced that they will be re-opening the Route 8 course and Line E lift up top from tomorrow (Saturday 1st) - hopefully right through until the end of the season this time! As things stand it will remain accessed via Goryu.

Happo-one has two trails with Usagidaira and a groomed Kurobishi Trail prepared early this morning. The Adam Gondola, Usagidaira pair lift and Kurobishi No2 quad lifts are operating.

At Tsugaike this morning it is sunny and the clouds haven't moved in yet, and the upper part of the resort is open with the Eve Gondola and Hannoki pair lifts operating.

Hakuba Cortina plans to open on December 15th and Hakuba Iwatake is planning a December 20th opening.. whether they will open earlier if we get lots of snow? Don't know, no word on that, but I will let you know if there are any signs.

First off though, we need that snow.

Resorts currently part open & operating lifts:

Happo-one:
Gondola
Usagidaira pair
Kurobishi No2 quad

Hakuba Goryu:
Gondola
No1 pair lift

Tsugaike Kogen:
Gondola
Hannoki pair
