Morning from Hakuba.

We got a bit of rain yesterday at times but while it remained cloudy, we actually got a bit of sun peeking through from time to time in the afternoon.

This morning there is still a lot of cloud around, but it has been clearing over the last few hours and there's some blue sky on view too. The forecast is for fine weather today so perhaps it will continue to clear and end up a sunny day.

Forecast is for generally fine conditions over the upcoming long weekend.

I was at 47 yesterday for a short while. The lower run back down to base has some ground showing now in places, but still up and running - they do well to keep it open right until the end of the season.
