Well, I'm afraid it's raining this morning in Hakuba, and has been since last night.

It's not going to help the remaining snow of course, and some places that had only a small amount of snow remaining may suddenly be getting bare today. It's all about getting in the last runs now over this last run of days of the season on-resort.

Lots of cloud around this morning and fog reducing visibility in places on the mountains. Still it will be getting fairly warm during the day.

Hopefully we will get to see the sun tomorrow, though forecasts do say there's a chance of rain showers still at times.

For the

Happo-one have an information stand by the Gondola base now with information regarding the situation for folk wanting to explore the mountains beyond the ski lifts. There's a white board there stating the number of accidents in the Northen Alps last year - 72 accidents; 12 deaths; 41 injured; 25 rescued. The message is clear - make proper plans, take proper care and don't be a statistic!
