Good morning from Hakuba.

It was not the nicest of days yesterday with rain and wind and some lift/resort closures affecting folk who wanted to be out in those conditions...

This morning there is a lot to report, so I will get straight to it:

At Happo-one, the lower courses are now all closed and you need to take the Gondola back down to base. Same over at Tsugaike Kogen. At Hakuba Goryu you can still ride back down to the Gondola base using the Toomi course, though snow is getting rather thin on the ground there. Almost all of 47 remains open - a bit of walking is required on the lower part of the R-7 detour course. I think that about covers it.

I'm happy to be able to report a much nicer start to the day today. A relatively cold start, light winds, lots of cloud but increasing amounts of blue sky. It should be a nice day and temps are set to rise to around 11C in the village.

Will they all be able to remain open until 6th May? I'll keep you updated every day until then!
