Yesterday turned out to be a really warm day. At 3pm, Hakuba 47 were reporting a temperature of +4C at the base of the Line C quad at the resort. Snow conditions seemed to suddenly change from the awesome powder we had to more spring-like conditions, alarmingly fast. (Who can I complain to, I demand perfect conditions every day!!)

It's a warm morning this morning. At the base of Happo a temperature of +4 degrees recorded and it's going to get warmer still tomorrow. Rain seems inevitable. But the better news is that the rain should be followed by snow overnight into Saturday, though whether that will be enough to fix up the damage of this warm spell and rain remains to be seen. (As the forecast stands, not really).

Anyway, positive thinking! There's some lovely blue sky and views of the mountain today, with some clouds here and there to add some drama to the scenery. Treat it like a day of spring skiing or boarding and you'll be set.

I'll bring you the latest tomorrow morning.
