Good morning from Hakuba.

Here we are folks - it's the last weekend of the season. Come tomorrow evening, those ski lifts will be able to take a rest.

And after the unsettled weather yesterday, it seems that we are going to enjoy some fine weather conditions over the weekend.

Get this - Goryu, 47 and Happo-one are reporting 5-10cm of fresh snowfall up top (none on lower areas). And some of you may notice that indeed some of the official snow depths reported below have increased by 5cm since yesterday. It's funny to see fresh snow at this stage of the season, but of course very nice all the same. :)

Right now there's still cloud around but blue sky too and we are expecting fine weather both today and tomorrow, warming up into low 20's during the day tomorrow.

Enjoy the weekend!

Tomorrow is the last day of the official ski season for all of the ski resorts in Hakuba.

It will also be my last report of this long season. With settled weather due over the weekend, that last report might appear later than usual.
