It's a heck of a start to the day here in Hakuba.

How do you like the sound of thunder storms, lightning, rain and wind? And warm too. (What month are we in again?!)

At the moment because of the danger of the nearby storm, Hakuba Goryu, Hakuba 47, Happo-one and Hakuba Iwatake are all closed. Tsugaike Kogen has it's lower lifts moving and only a small part of Cortina is open. That's the situation as far as we can tell at the moment. Some lifts did actually start for the day but have stopped now - so hopefully this might change if the storm eases off and we can get going again.

Not sure how much fun it would be if they did open up though with the rain and warmth. Earlier on temps rose to above 15C in the village but it has since cooled down a bit and we're on around 10C now but a warm wind blowing. These warm conditions just continue.

Will we get another cold snap? We're expect temps to drop considerably today and drop below zero overnight and for tomorrow to be much colder. Only temporary though as Tuesday should see things warm up again somewhat.

Don't quite know what to make of it all! It's one of those days best spent taking an onsen, if you ask me. Then again, if the slopes do all re-open, it will be relatively quiet for a Sunday I would guess!
