Good morning from Hakuba as we enter another week which includes the first little bit of Golden Week (which is just the lonely one day national holiday on Wednesday) - the main part of Golden Week for most people will be from Saturday until Wednesday next week.

Weather wise it's going to be more of the same, though warm from the get go and none of the slight chill I mentioned yesterday morning.

Sun and warmth is what to expect this week.

---

Happo-one:

The Kokusai Number 1 pair and Saka Kita One quad lifts are also operating from Wednesday 29th until Wednesday 6th May. They are effectively acting as 'get you there' lifts to relieve some of the pressure from the Gondola.

Happo has started it's 'yuki asobi' (play in the snow) event and that will go on until 10th May when the ski resort closes.
