It is a fine morning - a bit warmer than yesterday but it's still fairly chilly out there though as the day moves on and we get into tomorrow the temperatures should start to rise.... it looks like we are on for a run of good weather now.
Tomorrow (Wednesday) is a national holiday in Japan, so expect more people out there than on a usual mid-week day.
After the colder weather and snowfall follows the fine sunny weather and bright blue skies (though things have clouded over somewhat this afternoon). It has been a fantastic day to be out there with the snow giving the runs up top a bit of new life and some surprisingly decent conditions up there. There's a fairly moderate wind up on the mountain.
Tomorrow is a national holiday in Japan and it is looking like we will be treated to more fine and warm weather tomorrow was well as right through until at least the end of the weekend. Next Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday are also national holidays and the last of the Golden Week and indeed the last day open for Hakuba 47, Happo and Tsugaike Kogen this season.
