It has been a wet and rainy morning here in Hakuba I'm afraid, though I am hearing reports of wet snow has been falling at times in higher areas. The rain has kept the slopes quieter even still so there's a real 'is it really open' kind of feeling to today. It's difficult to see much though as the mountains are shrouded in cloud and poor visibility out there as well. I think the onsens will be busy today!

It's about 5 degrees at the moment and likely won't reach much higher. Tomorrow should see slightly clearer conditions and will be a bit warmer. Back to a normal weekday as well. Here's a few bits of news regarding operations from tomorrow....

Toomi No 2 lift will be closed on weekdays.
Alps No2 and No4 lifts are closed.

Spring season lower charges from tomorrow (Tuesday)
