Good morning from Hakuba on this first day of the 'long weekend', Monday being a holiday.

And what a start!

Nice and cold early on with clear blue skies and sunshine.

Probably some hard conditions out there early on but with the sun warming things up things should soften up. A chance of a bit of snow overnight (?) but tomorrow also looks like it will be similarly clear and sunny.

I am going to go and make the most of it!

See you tomorrow...
