Golden Week honban!

Hello and a good morning from what seems like the ever-sunny Hakuba. Lots of folk driving in to enjoy the fine weather and what's left of the snow. Got to get those last turns in before we say goodbye proper to the season.

The sun is out and again it's going to warm up to around 25C here in the village. It should be nice and warm up on the slopes too. Great stuff.

The sun is likely to be with us again tomorrow though maybe more cloud and then some rain due around Monday.

Clear skies are currently forecast for the last day of the holidays on Wednesday though.

Let's Golden Week!
