Morning from Hakuba.

Another feel-good day yesterday out on the mountains though it's a bit different today. Mild overnight and while it was expected it's still sad to report that it is raining this morning.

Some forecasts say snow might be possible high up before tomorrow, but it'll very likely be raining here until tonight. Sunshine is forecast for tomorrow so it's limited. However, rainy conditions are forecast from Friday and over the weekend... going to be warm too.

Now that we are into April things are becoming more limited - with a few areas now closing, like the Iimori area of Hakuba Goryu. The better snow conditions can be found higher up so that's where you'd probably be heading anyway but more and more we'll see lower areas closing now. Best to check with the resorts to see what exactly is open if you plan to go in the coming weeks. I'll try to outline the main points in my reports here, which will continue through until the last lift stops for the season at Happo-one on May 10th.
