Morning from Hakuba.

The sun is out this morning and it's going to be another fine day with temperatures zooming up into early 20's by this afternoon.

Forecasts show us different stories of how the coming week will pan out, but it does seem that rain is expected for at least tomorrow and Thursday and perhaps beyond as well as we enter the Golden Week holidays on Friday.

As noted below, the top Riesen Grat course at Hakuba Happo-one is now closed but the Grat lift is still operating for the benefit of climbers only.

Hakuba Goryu/Hakuba 47 operations are just the Panorama Course (Goryu) and Route 8 (47), all accessed via the Hakuba Goryu Gondola (the base area of Hakuba 47 is now closed).

Snow conditions should be better earlier on this morning before the sun warms things up too much.

Upcoming Golden Week holidays:

* Friday 29th April - Sunday 1st May (3 day long weekend)
* Tuesday 3rd May - Thursday 5th May (3 day holiday mid-week)
* Saturday 7th May - Sunday 8th May (normal weekend)
