Morning all!

Yesterday the skies got more blue during the daytime and then started to get more overcast again later on. A fine spring day though generally and conditions remained pretty decent higher up. Lots of fun still to be had...

This morning the sun is out and it looks like it is going to be another fine one. More fine weather is due tomorrow too. (Though is that a chance of some rain later on today?)

Still, let's keep an eye on the forecast - and my reports of course - for the chance of fresh snow mid week.

Things feel rather quiet this morning. Gets like that as we get into the middle of March...

Oh yes, from today it's 'spring' ticket prices time at Hakuba 47/Goryu.
