Good morning from Hakuba.

Hakuba Cortina were planning on closing today but they actually decided that yesterday was to be the last day of their season, which means that from today we are down to the four resorts remaining open. Hakuba Cortina is of course usually well known for massive amounts of snowfall (check out archive reports from previous seasons - links at the bottom of the page), but as with everywhere else in the region just didn't get it like usual this season. And it's pretty scary how fast it disappears - though I think that might always be the case, as it's just really sad to see the snow melting away!

Here's to a return to the norm for 2016-2017.

Back to today.

There's lots of cloud around this morning and it's already 10 degrees with a high of about 18C degrees forecast for later on. Looks like rain is on the way but it may be evening before it happens which would be better than during the day. With the freezing point right up there over 3000m, don't expect snow even on the upper resort areas... going to be rain. Fingers crossed that will clear up sooner than later tomorrow morning and by Tuesday the sun should be back.
