First of all, here's some news for you. Hakuba Goryu are extending their season and now plan to remain open until Sunday 11th May. From Wednesday 7th May until Sunday 11th, the Gondola and top Alps No1 lift will be operating, and tickets will cost 2400 yen for adults and 2000 yen for elementary school age children.

From what I can tell, Goryu is the only resort extending beyond next Tuesday. I will keep an eye open and report any other changes if there are any.

OK on to today. Very similar start to the day here as yesterday really - grey, and cloudy. There's a good chance of rain sometime during the day today and tomorrow too; maybe even into Thursday. The skies should be clearer from Friday though to be followed by the sun making Golden Week appearance over the weekend.

Remember, it's a 4 day weekend next week with Monday and Tuesday national holidays.
