Morning.

Yesterday was one of those really beautiful days. Stunning. As many of those days as I have experienced here in Hakuba, they always take my breath away. I know, I've said that before and no doubt I'll say it again. :)

By this morning the clouds have moved in and early on it is a curious mix of cloud, rain and even a bit of sun in places as well.

There's a strong wind blowing at higher elevations apparently. Lifts at Happo-one are on hold at the time of writing due to those wind conditions. They are classifying it as a 'delay' so hopefully things will improve quickly and they can get moving. Check before going! Hakuba Goryu are also making a note of the wind but Goryu/47 and Tsugaike Kogen appear to be opening as planned at the start of the day.

Today is also going to be mild with temperatures dropping again tomorrow with a chance of rain/wet snow. Not a whole lot of snow on them there forecasts right now.

I sometimes have to remind myself that it is still November!
