Good morning from Hakuba.

Yesterday wind did mess around with lift operations around Hakuba. The Gondola and upper lifts at Happo were closed due to strong winds with just the Nakiyama Number 3 triple lift operating, Tsugaike was closed and the top lifts at 47/Goryu were also closed with just base areas of both of those keeping open.

Thankfully this morning things appear to be calmer and it appears that resorts are opening as planned - though having said that, it would seem that the top lifts at Tsugaike are on hold.

It is sunny with blue skies all around and while it has been quite chilly early morning, it is going to be warming up as expected over the next three days or so.

Early start recommended before the sun gets to the snow!

-----

I have added 'operating lifts' information for each of the ski resorts (below). I will be checking that information each morning and updating as necessary. Of course, do keep in mind that things might change in a day due to weather etc. Will do my best to provide the latest info at time of the reports.
