Hello and good morning from Hakuba.

Beautiful weather in the region yesterday with clear blue skies in the morning and just some thin cloud developing in the afternoon, but it remained fine and sunny through the day.

This morning there's lots more cloud around from the start of the day. It's going to be mild during the daytime but some local forecasts also say that we might have snow falling by the end of the day.

Check out the weekly forecast (top tab on this page)! Excellent. If that happens, we're going to be having a very good week and by next weekend we'll be looking at a very different and improved situation overall. Might I soon be able to replace the daily 'what's open today' info (below) to a much more simpler and happier 'everywhere is fully open'? :)

Bring on that heavy snow please.

Today is the second day of the long weekend and so it will be busy on the slopes.

Until tomorrow when hopefully that forecast won't have changed.
