Yesterday was an altogether colder day in Hakuba and temperatures didn't rise more than to 5 degrees during the day and remained around or below freezing on the mountain. Some blue skies did open up above the village in the afternoon but mostly remained a cloudy and overcast day with foggy conditions persisting at some higher areas of resorts.

We start the day today with lots of cloud again and thick fog in places on the mountains. Looks like visibility up higher on Happo is fairly poor once again, though better than 20 minutes ago.

It is warmer this morning and already around 5 degrees. There is a light drizzle at the moment down at base, but is that snow I see falling higher up on the webcams? Unfortunately I'm not going to be able to find out myself first hand today.

More of the lower areas of Happo-one are closing now as the snow disappears from those areas. From yesterday the Kokusai Number 1 course closed and today the Central course is also closed. It seems that the Happo Banks snow park is closed from 1st-5th April but they do plan to be open on 6th-7th April.

Tomorrow should be clearer and then a very high probability of rain on Tuesday.

Today is the last day of the season for the Hakuba Sanosaka resort area.
