Good morning from Hakuba.

Great day yesterday and such a 'massive bonus' feeling with that fresh snow. Bit windy.

This morning it feels like we are heading back into spring weather. Blue skies with a bank of cloud around higher mountain areas. It is likely going to be a fine day with lots of sunshine and much warmer conditions - temps down in the village are due to rise to 10C and perhaps even slightly higher this afternoon. And warmer than that tomorrow too.

It should be a great day. Watch out for wind possibly affecting some upper lifts though.

I am keeping an eye on resort operations each morning and adjusting info below to try and keep it as correct and up to date as possible.
