Another lovely morning here in Hakuba. The sun is out, blue skies, some fluffy white clouds hanging around the peaks...

The mild conditions continue here with a high of around 8 degrees expected today. Temperatures didn't drop into minus territory last night at village level. It's looking like tomorrow will be a fairly similar story with milder conditions continuing into next week.

There's still the usual last minute preparations being made around the village. Not many people out on the open slopes yet.

I think generally the locals are ready for the season to properly get started. All we need now is the snow!
