A sunny morning here in Hakuba and just a light breeze.

The forecast for later in the week is still looking interesting. Well the bit after the rain we are expecting around Thursday anyway! Will it really be snowing once again Friday/Saturday? We'll just have to wait and see.

The snow has been melting away quickly around the village of late with rice and farming fields now exposed and only mounds of snow here and there left. There's still very good cover on the mountains higher up; though more - and bigger - patches of ground starting to show through in areas close to base now. With temperatures due to rise to around +12 degrees today, there'll be more of that going on. Inevitable of course, but sad all the same. Still get on the lifts higher up for that spring time slicing. It's all very quiet as well now. I think the next of sakura blossiming in Tokyo signals a real turn in the season with lots of people finishing up for the season.

Happo-one has closed off parts of the mountain due to the dwindling amount of snow on lower slopes. The following course areas are now closed: Central course; Champion course; Kita one course; Sakka; Forest run by Skyline; Kita one number 3 return course.
