After that rainy start to the day yesterday things dried up later on in the day and the clouds gradually moved higher revealing more of the mountains as the afternoon went on. Visibility remained limited in places on the open resort slopes though from time to time.

It's clearer this morning, though there is still a lot of cloud around. The sun has been showing through the clouds every now and again since earlier on. It's about 15C in the village just after 9am.

Sun (some cloud) and warmth seems to be what is forecast from tomorrow through into next week.

Remember, Happo-one, Hakuba 47 and Tsugaike Kogen are all open until Tuesday with Hakuba Goryu planning to battle on until the following Sunday.
