Happy Christmas from a snowy Hakuba. And a very snowy Hakuba it has been as well. After a relatively late start to things, we have suddenly become Snow Central! All of the resorts in the village have reported considerable snowfalls since yesterday and as you can see from the snow depths below, there has been a pretty big jump there.

Smiles all round as lots of people have been out on the slopes to enjoy the excellent snow conditions. Lots of untouched runs especially this morning and from today many of the main resort areas are now fully open, or at least close to being fully open.

With snowy conditions set to continue right through the coming week, impressively heavy at times and keeping very cold, winter sure has turned up in style.
