The sky looked almost blue this morning but the forecasted rain is threatening with a few drops just starting to fall now. This rain is predicted to get heavier as the day progresses and continue through tomorrow with colder temperatures than we've been having over the past few days.

----

Cyclists have also been out enjoying the fine spring weather and the dry roads. Rafting starts next weekend on Hakuba's Himegawa, so get out for a splash and an end of Winter wake-up in the water.

The last day of operation for Hakuba Goryu, Hakuba 47, Happo One and Tsugaike will be May 6th. It is always novel to go for a ski in your shorts on a May morning and then enjoy a picnic lunch underneath the blooming cherry trees before getting a good Mt. bike ride in or enjoying a relaxing afternoon on lake Aokiko. Yep it's that month of the year in Hakuba where you can enjoy all that Hakuba has to offer.

Take care if heading off piste or in the trees as there are open glide cracks in the snow, hollow sections that can collapse and wet snow avalanches on steep lines on any aspects. Those heading backcountry should be aware also of rockfall coming down from melting snow, rocks and trees on the snow surface and water flowing under the snow that can make crossing creeks and gullies potentially treacherous.

Avalanche Advisory:

Below tree line: Low

Tree line: Low

Alpine: Moderate
