It's going to be a warm one. Almost hot, even. Right now in village it is about 14C and some local forecasts are predicting a high temp of around 23 or 24C today. Another hazy look to things from the village but the Goryu webcam shows a clearer picture up top. Good excuse to get out and up there perhaps! As if we need one.

Following on from what I said about the snow melting away from lower slopes, the snow is now getting thin on both 47 and Goryu as well - 47 are saying there are places where stones and bushes are on show on the lower to-base course and even being kind enough to remind people to perhaps not use new gear.... wouldn't want to get it scratched! Still lots of snow cover up top of course.

Tomorrow rain clouds are forecast to be with us and it won't be warm. Things should clear and warm up in time for the weekend though.
