Hello from Hakuba and it has been a lovely spring morning here.

A chilly start to the early morning but things have warmed up quickly and right now around lunchtime it is hovering around +10C here in the village.

It has been a beautiful spring morning with more thin cloud gradually developing.

The weather of the last few weeks has of course meant that there has been a lot of snow melt going on around base. The slopes are fine with excellent cover still, though my friend pointed out to me last night how much snow has been disappearing from around town areas. Always sad, but we should be thankful that there's a lot on the mountain and there's still a good 6 weeks left of ski lift operations - all being well.

In fact, the forecast (for the mountains) seems to be looking quite interesting actually for the coming week with the chance of snow. That might be rain down at base. Let's see!
