Morning everyone from Hakuba.

I'm afraid it's not particularly nice here at the moment. (Note: Hakuba itself of course is always lovely!)

The weather though - heavy rain.

Going back to yesterday, and Happo-one were actually thinking about opening up more of the mountain, but in the end due to the unfriendly weather they are actually closed today. Here's the official announcement from Happo-one:

"Announcement! Happo-one Snow Resort CLOSED today. Due to heavy rain overnight, the ski slope condition is unable to be maintained. Unfortunately, today 23rd November 2017, Happo-one Ski Resort will close for the day. We sincerely apologize to customers & look forward to re-opening as soon as possible. Further updates will be announced at the end of the day."

The Gondola and top lift at Hakuba Goryu (along with the 47 top course) are currently open as planned though.

I am unable to confirm what is happening at Tsugaike Kogen - just tried to call but without an answer and their website remains not updated at the time of writing.

It is definitely not as cold this morning but hopefully this is just a temporary blip with things forecast to get colder again tomorrow and snow before then.

First tracks are always fun of course, but it's probably not the best day to enjoy them. I'd wait until things are fluffy again and clearer.
