Good morning from Hakuba and it's clear blue skies above the valley this morning.

It's a beautiful start to the day and it's going to be nice and warm. Kimochi-ii!

There's lots more of the same lined up for the coming week.

Some very interesting news for all you Hakuba fans.

Next season, there's going to be a Hakuba season pass. Yes, a pass that'll let you ride all the lifts at 10 resorts. Yey!

And it's yours if you have a spare 130,000 yen (or 70,000 yen if you are a child) - and should be available from the beginning of June*. (*Please note, there'll be no snow at that time!)

So how about that then? More info can be found here:
