So yesterday it was that light wet drizzle coming down in the village but snow was falling higher up on the mountains.... even a few cm of fresh but rather wet snow reported from higher areas.

This morning we have much better visibility and lots of blue sky above Hakuba. It was actually clearer earlier on as we have more clouds forming now. Still bright and lots of blue sky to enjoy though.

Temps dipped down to around -2 degrees overnight and this morning it is about 3 degrees now with a high of around 10 degrees forecast.

Tomorrow we are very likely to have rain (in the valley, at least).

As mentioned in previous reports, less terrain is officially open as of today. The Hakuba Iwatake Snow Field and Sanosaka resorts are now closed for the season and some lifts and runs at other resorts are now closed. It's the final stretch!

Hakuba 47 remains pretty much fully open. The upper area of Hakuba remains open along with the Sky Four lift at Toomi, with the Iimori area now closed. Over at Happo, there's only a few runs back down to base remaining open and from Skyline if you want to get back down to base on that side of the mountain you need to get the Kitaone Quad lift back down from today - so essentially it's mostly the upper runs at Happo still open. Hakuba Cortina has it's Number 2 and Number 4 lifts operating and plans to be open until the weekend.
