Things cleared up a fair bit in the afternoon yesterday, though it remained mostly cloudy.

There is still a lot of cloud around this morning and upper slopes are covered in cloud and fog with poor visibility. Down at village level there's some blue sky in places and so perhaps it will clear up this morning. That's what the forecast is for as well, followed by a chance of rain/sleet and possibly even snow at higher elevations.

Weather conditions for the Golden Week holidays (Friday to Monday) look set to be generally fine. Hopefully the sun will be out for the last few days of the season. Not amazing snow conditions of course, and it's getting thin on the ground in lots of places, but it's the last chance (for resort lift-assisted) sliding this season.

On Saturday and Sunday, the Gondola and the Kokusai Number 1 pair lifts at Happo-one will be operating from 7:30am for those wanting an early start.
