Cloudy skies prevail again here in Hakuba. A low cloud bank at the 1200m mark is obscuring the upper peaks and slopes.
Those colder temperatures are still expected soon. At the moment it is still looking likely that we can expect just light snowfall in the next few days with some potentially very heavy snowfall now forecast from around Wednesday night until at least the end of the week and hopefully beyond. If that happens the resorts will very likely be able to open up by the weekend.
