Did you get to see those views early yesterday? Amazing. Though instead of clearing up, the clouds increased and took over from the blue skies.

This morning there's another sea of clouds hanging over the valley to be seen, though not quite on the scale of yesterday by the looks. Still, it's certainly an impressive sight.

Clear blue skies once again once you get above that low cloud. We are expecting sun today though so I think it's more likely to clear than cloud over like yesterday.

More sun expected tomorrow.

Last nighta of the season at Tsugaike Kogen tonight and at Happo-one tomorrow night.

How about this snow early week, I hear you asking! Yes, it is still there on the forecast. All being well we will be being snowed on Monday and Tuesday...

Happo-one have announced that they will be extending their season - the plan was until 6th May but they will now be opening daily until Sunday 10th May.
Yey!
