After a wet and rainy start to the day today, the weather has turned out to be fine and sunny this afternoon. It is now a lovely sunny and rather warm afternoon in Hakuba with most of the cloud moving on leaving us with very clear views of the mountains.

Tomorrow is the first national holiday of "Golden Week". Friday is not a national holiday but Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of next week are, so come Saturday lots of people will be enjoying a 5 day holiday - and we can expect more people to be coming for that last ski and snowboard of the season.

Next Wednesday will also be the last official day of the season at the Happo-one, Hakuba 47 and Tsugaike Kogen resorts in the region, leaving just Goryu open for a few extra days until the 9th... so we are into the final stretch now. Last chance for on-resort fun.

As for the weather over Golden Week - tomorrow there is a chance of rain in the morning but it should clear up like today and after that from Friday through until the end of Golden Week it looks like it is going to generally be fine and sunny with warm temperatures.

Official resort snow depths on 28th Apr 10:

Happo-one:
100cm (Kurobishi/Usagidaira)
Hakuba Goryu:
145cm (Alps daira)
Hakuba 47:
80cm
Tsugaike Kogen:
