It remained a cloudy day yesterday for the most part with varying conditions up and down the valley. I was up on Hakuba Goryu and the sun was out up there, but it looks like some places remained firmly in a bank of cloud through the day with poor visibility. It was warm too but it managed to cool down to just under 0 degrees overnight.

No fresh snow to report though Hakuba 47 are actually reporting some some very fine light snow falling higher up on the mountain. It definitely feels colder. Lots of 'gas' fog and cloud hanging about again this morning with the top half or more of the mountain covered and not visible from base.

The forecast does predict conditions improving as the day goes on though...

Other signs of us entering the last part of the season include Hakuba Goryu closing down their nighta operations as of last night - not enough snow (and also probably not enough people as well!).

The other day I posted info on Hakuba Happo-one lift operation plans for the rest of the season.

Here's the news from the Hakuba Goryu resort:

Open until 31st March
Toomi Number 1 and Number 2 pair lifts
Iimori area

Open until 7th April
Toomi Sky Four lift

Open until 6th May
Top area lifts (via Gondola)

Hakuba 47 and Tsugaike Kogen also plan to be open in some capacity until 6th May. How much can remain open over the next few weeks will depend on the snow of course.
