Hello from Hakuba.

It was a generally cloudy day yesterday and this morning there is still a lot of cloud around as well as fog. Can't see much of the mountains from here by my base.

There was actually some rain falling yesterday evening but that has cleared, leaving us with a damp feel to early morning proceedings.

A few changes I can find this morning:

The lower part of Route 7 and the Tree Riding Zones at Hakuba 47 are now closed
There are restrictions over at the mid Han-no-ki course at Tsugaike.
The Lower Nakiyama South Side run at Happo-one base is still showing as part open (and not sure I'd recommended it, especially with decent gear!) and the Nakiyama lift is no longer operating.

Forecasts still say 'sun' for today (and tomorrow) so perhaps things will clear up this morning.

Just two weeks to go!
