Morning from Hakuba.

A fine morning yesterday though later in the day some gloomy looking clouds moved in over the mountains.

Rain falling this morning unfortunately and it seems that there's some strong winds up on the mountains (doesn't feel particularly windy down here at the moment).

Hakuba Happo-one and Tsugaike Kogen are both closed early this morning due to the wind.

It looks like the top area of Hakuba Goryu is open with the Gondola moving - making it basically the only option at the moment this morning.

Hopefully the rain will soon ease off and we might get some sunshine with sun forecast for tomorrow as well as much warmer conditions.
