So yes, yesterday was a truly beautiful day in Hakuba - clear, blue skies all day and a lovely clear evening as well. At 3pm, Hakuba 47 was reporting a temp. reading of +8C at the base of their Line C lift on the mountain and it rose to around 12 degrees at base. Snow was soft and very spring-like.

Temperatures dropped down to around -5 overnight at village level and now at around 6 degrees.

The sun is out again and once more we have clear blue skies above Hakuba. Well, mostly clear there are a few white fluffs of cloud here and there, but generally it's clear and blue.

There isn't much of a wind at base here, but some wind on the mountain which unfortunately seems to be affecting top lifts at Hakuba Goryu and also the top and northern upper areas of Happo, as well as the Gondola. And to think we were expecting a weekend of unaffected lift operations, but hopefully that situation might improve a bit later on.

More of the same tomorrow, perhaps warmer than today. There's not much chance of a decent snowfall on the weekly forecast as it stands at the moment, the only precipitation event that seems very probably being rainfall on Monday.

For today though there should be some very fun spring conditions to enjoy.
