Morning from Hakuba.

An easy report today and with everything most likely to be opening as planned it is time for an early report and some early tracks for me!

Lovely day yesterday with lots of sunshine and blue sky and some fine looking clouds hanging around too.

And this morning we have blue skies all around and it is a stunning start to the day. No clouds. It is actually really cold (colder here at base than higher up by the looks of reports), but we are still very much expecting the sun to warm things up considerably during the day. Local forecasts actually say it might warm up to +9C later on here in the village (!)

Tomorrow is still also forecast to be unseasonably mild but precipitation is due later in the day. Surely rain if it doesn't cool down quickly enough but snow still there on the forecast by the end of the day tomorrow and into Saturday and Sunday. So while the upcoming warmth should not be lasting much beyond late tomorrow and fresh snow is on the way.

For now it is a beautiful morning and I just can't wait to get myself on the lifts. Hope some of you can too.

I just have to decide where to go this morning... too many good choice. :)

LATE SEASON REPORTING
The individual Now reports will continue in each area until the season in that place closes - some will continue daily, some will become less than daily once we get into April.

Once the season has finished everywhere, we will be adding a general season wrap up to each of the reports, where we will also answer questions and comments that we regularly get sent. Some do keep on coming back! The end of season message will be up at the end of Golden Week in early May.

Thank you for reading.
