Good morning from Hakuba.

So in contrast with yesterday, we have beautiful blue skies and sunshine this Saturday morning. A forecast high temperature of mid teens both today and tomorrow.

The Champion Expert course at Hakuba Goryu is now closed but the Woody course connecting the upper area with the lower Toomi area is still open. There are increasing bare patches on show on the base Toomi run at Goryu, but still enough of a strip of snow allowing access back down to base.

A few bare patches are also starting to appear on the lower course at Hakuba 47, but they still have all their courses open.

Fine/cloud is currently forecast for tomorrow.

It should be a fine spring morning. I'm going to make the most of it while I can.
