Weather conditions: Rain, cloud
New snowfall: 0cm (upper); 0cm (lower) [Goryu official]
Snow depth: Hakuba Goryu Top : 280cm [official]
Well, we were expecting it but never fun to have to report rain. A high of around 5 degrees in the village this afternoon but rain coming down from the skies and apparently too right up on the resorts as well with them all reporting rain this afternoon.Lots of low cloud/fog hanging around and variable but generally fairly poor visibility out there on the upper slopes.

Lets hope this all clears up as quickly as possible with tomorrow forecast to start cloudy, but then bringing with it snow and hopefully from later on tomorrow through until around Friday we should be on for a potentially decent amount of snowfall. Temperatures should start dropping and then going back into minus daytime terrority from the second half of tomorrow. Can I hear all those fingers being crossed?!

The weekend crowds are gone once again as we start the new week.
