Trusting you all had a great Christmas. It was a very white one in Hakuba with more than 6ocm of snow falling in the last 48 hours. Today it is lightly snowing and overcast.
All resorts are now open except for Minekata. Snow depths range between 30cm on some parts of Happo and 160cm at the top of Cortina. You cannot ski ski right to the bottom at all resorts yet but hopefully over the next few days all the lifts will be running. There will be plenty of deep fresh powder up top today to plunder but probably getting chopped up by the afternoon.
