That's it then folks.

Yesterday was the last day of the season for the Hakuba Goryu resort opened for the weekend, the day started off with some clouds amongst the mostly blue skies. This morning it's blue skies and already close to 20 degrees. Going to be another fine and very warm day here. There's lots of those ahead now as we move into "green season" proper. It's a long wait until the next snow in autumn, but lots of things to do in Hakuba during that time of course.

It has been a good long winter though, so we should be thankful. You can relive the season with a look back through the archives of these Hakuba Now reports, which is what I have been doing the last few days.

Some top memories of awesome snowfalls once again and excellent snow conditions. As with other areas, the heavy snow was perhaps not as full-on and prolonged at times as it has been known to be, especially down at village level, but on the mountains (where it counts) the resorts have been able to be operating through until May as usual. Of course, March 2013 saw things warm up a bit too much for everyone's liking, but then it cooled down again and even brought us snowfall in the last part of the season.

There's still a lot of snow up there in the mountains for the more adventurous types, but now the ski resorts are all officially closed and are preparing to click into their summer season operations.

The gondolas at the resorts will be open from the following dates:

Happo-one - Saturday 25th May (until 4th November)
Tsugaike Kogen - Saturday 1st June (until 4th November)
Hakuba Goryu - Saturday 15th June
Hakuba 47 - Saturday 13th July

So you can get up there for some cool fresh air, hiking, and those magnificent views of the Hakuba mountains.

Anyway, that's it for our reports this season, thanks for reading. I hope you enjoyed reading them. Hope you were able to get to Hakuba as well and enjoy the snow.

Come the end of summer we'll all be desperate for the snow once again... and we'll be here once it starts to cool down.

Have a fun summer and see you in autumn.
