Good morning from Hakuba.

And it's a beauty as well. Blue skies all around early on, though a bit of cloud may start turning up for later on in the day. Temperatures are set to rise to perhaps around 17 degrees at village base later on this afternoon. There's just a slight southerly breeze at the moment.

The forecast is for cloud tomorrow morning and then some rain which will perhaps be heavy at times.

Some courses getting narrower now as the snow continues to melt away - but Hakuba 47 is still managing to keep the course open down to base.

Snow cover higher up is still generally holding pretty well.
