Well no rain today in Hakuba (yet), however overcast skies and clouds look like they will be here all day. It rained until early this morning so the runs will definitely be soft and slushy out there. Today looks like it is going to be warm as well, rising up to 5 degrees at the base. Still good skiing conditions on the resorts though top to bottom so for this late in the season that is a nice thing to have!
