Weather conditions: Light snowfall
New snowfall: 10-20 cm
Snow depth: Hakuba Goryu Top : 245cm
Great weather yesterday with sunshine pretty much all day and some nice stashes still to be found though runs are getting pretty iced out by late afternoon.

Goryu reporting 10 cms of fresh snow but it seemed more than that in the village around 20cm. Our man on the ground reckons no snow as at 3:00 AM yesterday morning so it was a late starter but light and fluffy meaning early morning runs were a treat in the right spots.

Snow continues to fall lightly outside and visibility is not the best at altitude but the resorts are in great condition and the slow snowfall will continue to fill in the gaps. Still pretty bushy in general – the more snow we get the better not that that is ever not true!

The forecast is for snow to continue through today stopping/clearing tomorrow with more snowfall possible from the weekend.
