Morning from Hakuba.

So, not nice rain during the morning but the clouds started clearing late morning and we got to see some blue sky behind the remaining clouds and sunshine at times in the afternoon. It felt pretty chilly on the mountain as well.

That seems to be about to change with lots of sunshine and temperatures due to rise over the next few days... approaching mid 20's over the weekend!

Today we should see a high of around 20C in the village.

The sun is out and it is a lovely clear blue sky morning.

---

The lower section of the winding R-7 course at Hakuba 47 is now closed with just part of the upper area of R-7 apparently remaining open. R-1 back down to base is still open though, but beginners are recommended to use the Gondola to get back to base.

Cherry blossom alert.

Blue sheet along with beer and snacks required!!!
