Good morning from Hakuba where unfortunately... it's raining, and rain is what is expected for lots of today I'm afraid. It should ease by tonight and tomorrow if it does rain should be less than today - though forecasts are varying on opinion there.

There's lots of cloud (and fog/gas) around and it's all a bit grey and wet at the moment with the temperatures just around 6 degrees.

We're still looking at the chance of colder conditions come Tuesday. Let's keep an eye on that.

Today is the last day of the season for Hakuba Cortina and Kashimayari.

From tomorrow, we'll be left with these 4 resorts open in the valley area:

- Hakuba Happo-one
- Hakuba 47
- Hakuba Goryu
- Tsugaike Kogen

...all of which will continue on until the end of Golden Week (and the 10th in the case of Happo).
