Good morning from Hakuba.

Not very appealing conditions this morning, I'm afraid.

I'll get straight to it... it's raining. High up, too.

We are hoping that it will ease off this morning and there is some sunshine appearing on forecasts too, so fingers crossed.

Tomorrow should be sunny with it warming up to nearly 20C. Yikes! Still, it should be a lovely day to get out on the mountain without all that chunky winter gear.

---

Sunday is the last day of the season for a few more lifts - noted below for Happo-one and Tsugaike - and so from Monday we kind of enter 'the last chunk' of the season.

It lasts a while though - there's still a full 4 weeks to go!
