Morning from Naeba.

A cloudy-overcast kind of grey start to the morning after that beautiful day yesterday.

And alas, it is on the milder side and we can expect some rain, which is of course really annoying. Even Kagura appear to be saying rain, with the chance of some snow high up top. We might just have to sit through it and hope it isn't much.

Still it perhaps won't be as warm as we thought it might be which is one consolation. Here's to a return to colder quickly.

Oh yes, some good news. The top Takenokoyama course opened from yesterday. So that means 21 of 22 courses are now open (just Splash Bowl not available yet, and that is not always available anyway even when there's tons of snow).

Head up high for the better snow and the chance (maybe) of some light snow. Let's positive.
