Well the rain of yesterday has gone and this morning it is just cloudy over Hakuba. The lower areas of the resorts are visible but upper areas covered in cloud. One or too sightings of blue sky every now and again but it's pretty much going to be cloud for the day I think. The weather yesterday didn't help snow conditions and I think a fair bit will have melted away. Not much wind today and a high of around 14C a bit later.

How about the weekend then? Looks like it should be fine and sunny and start to warm up again.... a high closing in on the mid-20's tomorrow afternoon? It's possible. What seems pretty certain is that for this first long weekend of the Golden Week holidays it should be good clear weather conditions. Anyone for some late spring skiing or boarding? It will probably be busy out there, but I hope you can come and enjoy it while things are still open.

Just over a week left!
