The beautiful weather conditions continue in the region this morning.

It heated up to around 28 degrees in the village yesterday! As you might expect, the remaining snow is quickly retreating though you can still even at this stage pretty much get from top to bottom at Hakuba 47. The upper areas of Goryu, Happo-one and Tsugaike also remain open but you need to get the Gondolas back down there.

There's a bit more thin cloud around this morning but still the sun is shining bright and it's going to be another very warm (hot) day.

Cloud is expected to move in later today and cloudy conditions forecast tomorrow with a bit of a drop in temperature as well. Rain might wait until the end of the day tomorrow to start and hopefully clear up quickly on Tuesday morning leaving us with sun on Wednesday.
