Good morning from Hakuba.

Happily the strong winds of yesterday are gone and it's a fine but hazy morning. Today we are probably going to see temperatures rise to around the mid-20s, and similar conditions are forecast for tomorrow as well.

Ski courses that remain open are getting narrower by the day (hour? minute?!) now...

Today ended up being the last day of the season for the ski courses at the Tsugaike Kogen resort (though they will keep the Gondola + Ropeway operation going until Sunday).

Tomorrow, Wednesday and Thursday are national holidays in Japan.
