We couldn't avoid rain yesterday unfortunately. In the morning we got some but it fairly quickly eased off and then later in the evening some more rain. It was a balmy 10 degrees even at midnight last night.

Temperatures dipped early this morning and right now it is about 5 degrees at village level. Temperatures will rise over 10 degrees again today as the very spring like conditions continue.

A fair bit of cloud around, depending on which direction you look, but the sun is out and generally a fine morning.

Didn't think the wind would cause problems today, and it's not particularly windy here at base, but it looks like it is on the mountains. The gondola and upper lifts at Happo-one are not moving at the moment and top lifts at Goryu/47 also seem to be disrupted early this morning. The Mountain Side of Hakuba Iwatake is also closed for the moment due to wind conditions.

Fresh snowfall sometime next week? Looking possible, so we'll keep an eye on that.

For now though let's spring skiing. Or snowboarding.
