Heavy snow and blizzard conditions this morning.

Got you there didn't I? Perhaps not. Yes, the sun is out and it's another warm morning here in Hakuba as this long stretch of similar weather conditions continues. And it's going to very likely continue through the weekend too with temperatures rising to close on mid-20's degrees each day.

Fantastic weather to be out on the mountains, even if the snow is sadly quickly melting away.

Hakuba Goryu put in a stellar job keeping a thin strip of snow available on the Toomi run back to the Gondola, but nature has won out there and now it's just the top area open there, with a return to base ride on the Gondola.
