After a beautiful day yesterday, it's... another beautiful morning!

There is no new snowfall to report. Early morning conditions in particular should be good, though it is going to start getting warmer - and quite a lot warmer than we would like as well.

Dare I say it, it's going to be an almost spring-like day. Temperatures here in the village may rise to around 7-8 degrees today and tomorrow even higher and perhaps even hitting double digits. To make it worse, we're still expecting rain over the weekend. Oh dear.

The topsy-turvy strange weather patterns look set to continue after that though as well with a return to winter-like conditions come early Monday and early week - even perhaps some heavy snow.

What an strange season weather-wise it is turning out to be.

Oh by the way, all of the Tree Riding Zone at Hakuba 47 now open.
