Cloudy skies still over Hakuba early on this morning but it is dry now and the forecast tells us that we should get to see the sun today... it just won't be quite as warm, much like yesterday. Clouds do seem to be getting less quite quickly over the last hour or so, so perhaps we can expect some good weather today fairly soon.

Tomorrow the sun is due for the day and temperatures rising over 20 degrees, so it should be a good last day of the season for Hakuba 47 and Tsugaike Kogen.

Currently it's looking like we might get some more rain on Thursday...
