Good morning from Hakuba.

It was pretty cold outside yesterday!

Visibility improved by mid to late morning over at 47/Goryu, though it was variable on the upper slopes of Happo-one - creating some impressive and mysterious scenery at times. And like I said... cold. It certainly didn't feel like the late part of April.

Lots of cloud this morning but blue sky on show in places too and the sun currently shining through my window. Fine sunny weather is forecast.

Over the next few days we can expect things to get a little warmer too - though it doesn't look like there's a crazy heat up due yet.

Resorts open as planned. Enjoy the day!
