Good morning from Hakuba.

Lots of cloud around this morning and some rain. Fingers crossed the rain might clear later on but it might be back tomorrow - as might snow. Whether that will just be 'up top' or lower down, we shall just have to wait and see what happens. As they say. Whatever, it's going to be a cold start to the weekend so don't come expecting warm and sunny typical Golden Week weather. Not just yet anyway, we might get some of that next week.

Snow is retreating and there is less of it about especially in lower areas that remain open (see 47 and Goryu) but there's still a fair bit up there enabling the resorts to remain open until the end of Golden Week on Monday 6th May. Not sure I'd want to use my new expensive gear (not fresh and fluffy, some ground showing through in some lower places etc).
