Another beautiful sunny spring day here in the Alps with 10 degrees in the shade already and not a cloud to be seen or a breeze to be felt. Early morning carving up on Goryu's Alps Daira and 47's Line 1 turning to jib sessions in the early afternoon then beers in the sun...it doesn't get much better this time of year.

----

Cyclists have also been out enjoying the fine spring weather and the dry roads. Rafting starts next weekend on Hakuba's Himegawa, so get out for a splash and an end of Winter wake-up in the water.

The last day of operation for Hakuba Goryu, Hakuba 47, Happo One and Tsugaike will be May 6th. It is always novel to go for a ski in your shorts on a May morning and then enjoy a picnic lunch underneath the blooming cherry trees before getting a good Mt. bike ride in or enjoying a relaxing afternoon on lake Aokiko. Yep it's that month of the year in Hakuba where you can enjoy all that Hakuba has to offer.

Take care if heading off piste or in the trees as there are open glide cracks in the snow, hollow sections that can collapse and wet snow avalanches on steep lines on any aspects. Those heading backcountry should be aware also of rockfall coming down from melting snow, rocks and trees on the snow surface and water flowing under the snow that can make crossing creeks and gullies potentially treacherous.

A large wet snow slide was reported off Hiyodori and the Tsugaike Gondola was stopped at the time of this report.

Avalanche Advisory:

Below tree line: Low

Tree line: Low

Alpine: Moderate
