Good morning from Hakuba.

It was a fine day yesterday. More cloud turning up as the day went on but all in all a fine spring day with lots of people around having fun.

Hakuba 47 is this morning reporting 1cm of snow on the upper areas but that is the only report of snow that I can find this morning. Alas, while it is apparently snowing lightly at higher elevations right now, it is raining down here at base. So the advice for the morning will be --- head up high!

It is currently about +2C here at base and it isn't forecast to warm up too much today. Perhaps we might be lucky to get a bit of wet snow, but I would expect more of the rain.

Sunshine is forecast for the day tomorrow.

Still looking towards later in the week for a chance of fresh snow...

-----

I have added more resort-specific information below.

I will try to keep this information updated every morning from now on with any information such as course and lift closings etc. There are going to be limits to the information that I can find and provide every morning, so I do not claim for this to be 'complete'. If you intend to visit and such details are important, please check with the resorts.

I'll do my best to bring good info to you and keep a track on what is happening around 'The Valley'.
