Morning from Hakuba.

It was a truly beautiful day yesterday in the region. The mountains looked magnificent, and the snow was... playful!

This morning, there is a lot of cloud around and while it was cold overnight it's due to get mild during the day again today. Perhaps a little too mild for our liking - hoping for snow later on (and definitely hoping to avoid possible rain). It's not due to last long though with clearer skies and calm conditions forecast for tomorrow morning.

Back to today though and some strong winds are causing some issues for top lifts at some resorts including Goryu/47, Happo-one and Tsugaike. More details can be found below.
