It's a warm one today. Already into double digit temperatures and a likely high of around 15 degrees this afternoon. The sun is out and blue skies all around. What more can I say? I'm going to get out there for some fun!

Down at village level for the most part snow has now melted away. Looking around now, there are fairly big patches of ground on show on the lower slopes of Happo as well. Those slopes are now closed of course and it is mid-April, so there's no drama there - we have certainly done well for snow this season! See below for updated info on what is open.

Official snow depths and operations @ Thursday 14th April AM:

Hakuba Goryu:
The upper slopes at Goryu plan to be open until 8th May.
The Gondola and Alps No3 pair lifts are operating.
The Alps No1 pair will be open on Saturdays/Sundays and from 29th April until 8th May.
The Toomi lifts are closed, but as long as there's enough snow on the lower slopes we can still ride down to the Gondola base.
Alps daira - 220cm.

Hakuba 47:
All lifts except Line D lift operating with all courses still open.
47 plans to be open into May.
Snow depth (upper) - 168cm

Happo-one:
The Gondola, Alpen Quad, Kurobishi No3 pair and Panorama pair lifts are operating. The upper slopes are planning to be open until 5th May. All of the lower lifts are now closed for the season - you need to take the Gondola down to the base at the end of the day. Course areas open are: Kurobishi, Usagidaira and Panorama. (The Grad quad will also be open on weekends and during Golden week, at those times opening up that top course as well).
Usagidaira/Kurobishi - 165cm

Tsugaike Kogen:
The Gondola as well as the Tsuga No2 pair and Han-no-ki high speed pair lifts in the upper area of the resort are operating. It is possible to ski/board right down from the top to the bottom of the resort via the Han-no-ki and lower Kawamatsu courses.
Snow depth upper - 245cm

Hakuba Iwatake, Hakuba Sanosaka, Cortina and Hakuba Minekata are now all closed for the season.
